I love the Reader's Notebook idea, I just have difficulty managing everyone's notebooks. Do you collect them on a daily basis and respond to letters? On a weekly basis? Is there a rubric you use when grading these responses?
Of course you are given richer insight as to each student's ability and mastery of skills and concepts with this approach, but how do grades play into the Reader's Notebook for the "almighty gradebook"? :)
