Reading Progress and Learning about Book Reviews

Goals: Examining our reading progress and learning about book reviews.


  • We always read. 
  • A recent study found that people who read are two and a half times less likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Syndrome later on in life. Although this does not mean that reading will prevent the disease, it proves a slight relationship between reading and prevention.
Reading Progress Survey: 
  • Complete THE SURVEY about your reading.
  • (Yes, you have done this before. Yes, you need to do it again.)

Book Reviews: 
  • Read THIS REVIEW of The Alchemist written by a former student of mine. It is not perfect, but it does a really good job demonstrating the structure of a book review. 

English Journal: 
  • Open your English Journal
  • Add 9/28/16 at the top (But be sure you are not writing in the header.)
  • Begin a draft of your book review. Write about the book you already finished reading. 
Memoirs are due today. I begin to grade them on the rubric this afternoon. 
You can still work on it. But you may need to request a regrade. 
You will know I graded yours when you see a copy of the rubric show up at the bottom of the doc.
