Our response binders are a work in progress throughout the year. I've created most of the templates we use, and I am always changing and adapting to fit the class that I have and their particular needs. The past couple weeks we have been doing mini-lessons on making meaningful connections, so my response sheets match that righ now. More sheets are added as we go for asking questions/wondering, visualizing, inferencing, etc. I also have open-ended questions students answer for within the text, about the text and beyond the text questions. I find at this time of year though my third graders need a lot of guidance and modeling to get their responses down on paper. I'm working on a couple posts right now but I'll definitely be sharing my reading response materials within a few weeks. I'm interested in what types of specific jobs your kids have and and I'd love to hear more about your projects. I am a huge fan of any type of authentic assessment!
