Independent Reading/Book Reviews

Students are required to read two books per grading period (every six weeks).
The books are free choice, though it should be a quality book appropriate for school reading.

When reading a book students should add the book to their "currently reading" shelf on Goodreads and update their page number a few times during their reading.

When a student finishes the book he or she should write a review on Goodreads.  See the chart at right.  This is an example of a pretty good review by one of my former students.
Tip: Write the review first in Google Docs and then paste it into Goodreads.

At the end of the grading period students can use this form in class to submit the link to their book review. Each review has it's own unique page.  Make sure you are giving me the link to YOUR review and not the link to the book's main page.

Students will post one review on Goodreads and then answer some questions about the other book they read in a Google Form.
