A reading response journal for students to use to engage with text in meaningful and purposeful ways.
A Reading Response Journal is a place for students to write, draw, and share their opinions and ideas over a piece of text that has either been read together or independently in class. This allows students to engage with text in meaningful and purposeful ways.
Provide your students with a copy of the journal to complete before, during, and after reading a piece of text. These templates can be used for most text types and work well in any novel study or book club setting.
The templates included in the journal are:
- predicting and inferring
- making connections
- character report
- retelling important events
- personal review.
Use the drop-down menu to choose between the full color, low color, or black and white PDF versions or the interactive Google slide deck version.
