Reading Log Revamp

Our brainstorm of the things we read.
Everyone did reading over the summer.  Some of us were reading books; others read magazines, ebooks, blog posts and short stories.  When we came back and looked at the reading log that we had been using for the last few years, we decided that the way it was set up didn’t work well.  It didn’t give us enough space to record the things that were important to us in our reading.  So, the 7th graders decided to redesign the log.  To do that we have asked questions like “What do we read?”  and “Why might we want to record information about what we are reading?”  We have worked in groups to brainstorm answers to these, and many more, questions.  We are still in the process of exploring what the final log will be composed of, but be on the lookout for a new reading log coming soon to a bookbag or computer near you!
