You will be required to complete a Reading activity using either the novel you are currently reading at home or by reading a comprehension selection. The purpose of this assignment is to have you dig deeper into your reading through reflection and critical thinking.
The reading response journal will ask you will complete a reading response from your Reading Response Menu. The second assignment will ask you to use Close reading strategies. For both assignments, you must use evidence from your novel/book to support your thinking. You may type or write your responses. If you type your response, please email or share it with firstname.lastname@example.org.
