    Reading Response Journals
    By MrsT

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I use journals regularly and don't usually grade them. I have changing criteria that goes along with the focus of our mini lessons during reading workshop. I did create a generic rubric (but haven't actually used it yet). I usually record a check, plus or minus sign in my grade book for each letter written. My responses to the students (also in letter form) include assessment info for the kids about the strengths and weaknesses of the letter. I also ask questions, make personal connections, etc. Hope this helps...
