nd 2 Quarter Reading Workshop Updates Class Novels We will read 2 novels together as a class. We will read and analyze these novels together. The first novel we read is Touching Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelsen (it would be great to purchase a copy of this book for yourself). We will do chapter cards together for Touching Spirit Bear. I will model effective chapter card for you. Choosing a Book I am going to try to schedule library time this week. When you select a book, you must first discuss it with me. I will approve it. You cannot change books without first discussing it with me. You will complete chapter cards for the 3 books that you choose to read independently this quarter. I will document the book that you are reading and keep up with your progress throughout the quarter. Reading Log You will continue to read a minimum of 30 minutes each night. You may need to read more throughout the week or on weekends to make sure you are completing the book in a timely manner. In a 9 week quarter (which is what we have), you must complete a book at least every 3 weeks independently to meet the 5 book goal. Each night when you write your time on the reading log portion of your agenda, you must also write the pages that you read each evening. If you do not do this, it will affect your weekly reading log grade. Projects You will complete a project that is assigned to you with both of the 2 novels that we read together in class. I will provide a grading rubric to you. This is for quality control purposes, and to make sure everyone completes the projects.
