This graphic organizer is great for students to use in a group reading assignment. I give the students book to work on that is on their independent reading level. I group the students based on that level. It does take a couple of weeks to show the students how to properly complete the graphic organizer, but once they get the hang of it they love it! They love reading with their friends and they really get into talking about the books they are reading. I love that I can monitor their independent reading by reviewing what they have written at the end of the week!
