Book Pass

August 28, 2018

A big shout out goes to Mrs. Edmondson and Mrs. McClintick for their help in organizing the “Book Pass” for Mrs. Castle’s eighth grade Language Arts class in preparation for their upcoming book project.  Mrs. Edmondson selected fifty grade level, high-interest, fiction books which were rotated. Students had two and a half minutes to look at the front cover, read the blurb, and then start reading the first chapter.  After the time was up, students rated the book according to their interest using an emoji to represent yes, no, or maybe.  If a student found a book that they wanted to read for their project, they checked it out and another book was put into the rotation.  By the end of the day, seventy-five percent of the students had their books selected.
