Reader's Notebook Guidelines
 You will read a MINIMUM of 18 novels this year (outside of what we read together inclass).
 You must turn in a
One Pager
every 2 weeks. That assignment must be on aCOMPLETED book. Further description on One Pagers below.
 That means you must read a minimum of 6 books each trimester, and you mustwrite six
One Pagers
every trimester. They are 35 pts each for a total of 210 pts.per trimester
 You must log a
of 800 pages per trimester. There will be no roundingup. This will be inputted at a separate assignment worth 80 pts.
 The books you pick need to be about 133 pages each to hit 800 pgs. in 6books.
If you pick an average size book (133 pages), you need to read about 10pages every day/night to stay caught up with your work.* NONE of the books from your middle school classes (current or past) may count towardyour eighteen. I DO have a list of those titles.* ALL books must be within 100 pts. of your Lexile (unless special permission isgranted). You will get your Lexile Monday when we complete Lexile testing. If you arehaving trouble finding books within your level, we can discuss that. I will waive thisrequirement for the first TWO books of the first trimester ONLY.
For each book you will fill need to complete an assignment called a
One Pager
. For thefirst trimester, I will provide copies, but after you get the hang of it, you will write themout on lined paper. You will need to fill it out completely, as each section is worth aspecific number of points. What does a
One Pager
look like? Flip the paper over totake a look.
A specific reflection question will be
every 2 weeks. These will changewith every due date & I am trying to accumulate enough questions that you do nothave the same one twice ever during the year. There will be different questionsdepending on the type of book you’re reading – fictional story, biography, or non-fiction. You will need to answer giving SPECIFIC DETAILS from the book to supportwhat you’ve said.A few other things:* Absences have NO effect on the due date of these assignments. The only exception is if a student is absent ON the day it is due, in which case it must be turned in THE DAY they
return. DO NOT wait until the last minute to try to print, or type these because they doNOT need to be typed. Computer excuses are not acceptable.* Spelling and grammar will not be assessed for this project.* Each semester, the point value for the
One Pagers
will be 210 pts. (35 pts. each) DoNOT put the project off.* In addition, the 800 page requirement is worth an additional 80 points.* Writing MUST be legible to be graded.
One Pagers
may be pencil, ink, or typed. I haveno preference as far as cursive or printing – use whichever is more legible.
One Pagers
submitted to me electronically will receive 2 pts. extra credit each, however, these mustbe submitted TWO DAYS before the due date so if there is an electronic glitch you havethe opportunity to hand write it in time to turn it in.* All summaries and reflections must be in your own words. If you choose to copy eitherfrom a classmate, website, or back of the book, you are choosing to take a zero. The first due date is September 22
. If you are submitting electronically, please do soby Friday the 18
or Saturday the 19
