Reading response logs can be used throughout the novel. It is essential to model each element of the reading response log. This lesson plan will provide the students with a clear purpose for completing the response logs and provide practice for each element of the log. It is strongly recommended that you use chapter 1 and 2 of the novel as the practice text for this lesson. You can, however, use any short text to model and practice the reading response log. This lesson can be separated into parts and completed over a number of days. Once the reading logs have been mastered in class, this assignment can become a regular homework assignment.
