    One idea....

    Is to have an assigned book each month that everyone reads (or even a selection of maybe 10 that they choose from). That way you know the bnooks too.

    Then have them do a writing assignment based on that such as chapter summaries, or a new ending to the book, or how you would have felt as the main character, etc.

    If you create an easy rubric to follow of what your expectaions are as far as ingo they write about, this should help you know that the kids aren't faking it.

    Make it a major part of the grade---that always helps! You can also differentiate the list for your lower readers.
