Get rid of those composition books you use for double entry journals. Go paperless with Google Slides. I created templates to use in Google Slides for my students who are in a book club reading The Tale of Despereaux. Now they fill out a double-entry journal online, compare and contrast online, analyze characters online and even complete a flow chart online. Read my blog to see how I did it!
This is such a great reading and writing activity that you can use with any novel in your middle school classroom! I love the idea of incorporating student choice as well :) A great classroom resource!
