Teaching My Friends!: Weekly Reading Response Letters: Part 1 Write them a letter every week... Assign weeks where they have to respond? Or make them respond to one letter a month? Include their names and ideas they shared from the week?
#WritersWorkshop How do your students show what they know? Students need the language of evidence in order to provide it and this chart is a GREAT starting point. You could easily create "evidence" book marks for students to use when they are reading, serving as a reminder of how to craft a written or oral response to the text.
