Use these questions to check for understanding during/after students have read a self-selected book. There are three categories of questions I have included: fiction, nonfiction, and biography/memoir.
I have used these questions in years past to do quick check-ins while students were reading their books. You can use a few of these questions at a time during warm ups, choose to ask all the questions at the end of the reading, or whatever combo you feel would be best for your classroom. I have used these questions for high school, but they would work well for middle school too. Enjoy!
