Trimester 3 Reading Log Requirements
Reading Log: 1,400 pages need to be read and recorded between February 23, 2015 and June 1, 201. Independent reading is important to developing reading skills. The more you read, the better you read. Therefore, books recorded on the reading log are expected to be in addition to the reading already being read as part of the curriculum.
Two of the books on the reading log MUST come from the required genre. The required genre for spring trimester are:
1. Poetry Anthology- An anthology is a collection of poems, often of a similar theme. Students should select poetry that has some depth- Shel Silverstein and similar authors are not suitable for this assignment.
2. Non-fiction- This book can be over any topic, but must be suitable for middle school level readers.
Librarians and internet searches through local book stores databases can be useful for checking if a book fits the required genre.
Book Review: Students will complete two book reviews. One poetry and one non-fiction. The book review will be evaluated on depth of analysis, quality and quantity of ideas, spelling, and grammar. Words that are not the student's is plagiarism and will result in a zero.
