This reading reflection assignment was used in lieu of reading questions, which is what I normally use to assess understanding while we read a novel. This assignment, which was given to advanced 8th grade English students, asks the students to delve deeper into the story by exploring their own thoughts, feelings, and reactions as they read. Although originally assigned to advanced students, this assignment would be great for regular level and higher ELD level (4 or 5... I recommend reading an abridged version with ELD students).
This product is 1-page but the Reading Reflection directions only take up half a page. I've included two sets of directions on this page so you can make copies and cut in half to save paper.
