I'm always looking for a way for my students to "dig deeper" in their reading and in their responses to reading. I wanted to be able to easily assess where their strengths and weaknesses alike were when thinking about their reading.
This log requires students to think "within the text", "beyond the text", and "about the text". There are specific questions for students to choose from which fall in the three categories. A rubric is also attached for your convenience.
It will be made clear through assessing where each student's strengths and weaknesses lie, making pulling small/strategy groups a breeze!
