Book Clubs: Keeping Kids Accountable

I've previously blogged about book club accountability {visit that post here} but I've really upped my game this year -- trying to diversify ways I can hold students accountable for the books they're choosing and reading in class.

A daily reading and page check in really help! This usually takes less than 5 minutes and holds students accountable for their reading!

Here's what my Reading Roll Call looks like! I usually keep track Tuesday-Friday but you could add a column for week long tracking. Grab your own copy {here}.

Getting to know your readers is really important. Just stopping to observe independent reading over a few days can give you a lot of information! Thankfully, Stacey from Literacy for Big Kids, has a wonderful and easy to use Status of the Class form to help keep observational data on our readers.

Check in quizzes help with the assessment piece of book clubs. Open ended quizzes throughout your 
reading hold kids accountable and allow you to "grade" their independent reading and comprehension. I've found that keeping quizzes simple helps with grading and checking basic understanding! Grab a copy from my Google Drive {here} - download and make it your own!
