Reading Challenge for Middle School Students to inspire and motivate them to get reading, responding, and thinking critically during the dreary months of winter. Differentiated points plan gives students points for everything they read. They must respond to each text they read but again points are awarded -- shorter tasks receive smaller amounts of points.
Goal is for class to reach 1000 points and earn a reward of their choosing (ie: spring pizza party or picnic). Early bird rewards can be established at other point levels as well.
Notebook file outlines the challenge, provides student tracking pages, point allocations, reading response activities, and a model for responding to texts.
