A reading response template for students to write a personal review of a piece of text.
A personal review is when a reader shares his or her personal opinion about a text they have read. It allows the students to connect with the text in terms of what they did and did not like and what connections they had with the text.
Use this resource with your students during or after reading a piece of text independently.
