Product Description

This product includes a tool for assessing your students' thinking notes about their reading. It includes a rubric and checklist for creating a snapshot of a student's reading thinking.

Students will choose 6-10 of their best thinking notes for one book they have read. The teacher will then use the rubric and checklist to assess their thinking. The checklist will help the teacher create a snapshot of the kinds of thinking a student is doing while they read. The snapshot can then be analyzed to assess if the student has a basic/surface/literal understanding of the text or a deeper/inferential understanding of the text.

The checklist and rubric will help to guide your thinking about the reading notes and provide the student with feedback about how to improve his/her reading thinking or how to move him/her from surface understanding to deeper understanding.

This form can be placed in a data binder for the individual student.

As always, if you plan to share this product with other education professionals, additional licenses MUST be purchased for each individual using the product. Additional licenses are available for purchase on this product page.
