I use this note taking sheet with my students as they read The Road by Cormac McCarthy. I ask them to include either quotes or drawings or notes as we go through the book to mark the various events that happen with the boy and the man. Most students draw events, but some dislike drawing, so they have other options. This is also fun to use as a competitive piece--students can vote on the best representation of Cormac's work. They can use multiple pages of this sheet, create their own, etc. It's fun!
