I saw this idea on pinterest and I'm really excited to try it with my small groups!
I'll have them write down their favorite quotes from the novel we are reading and then justify why they chose those quotes :)
I'm also excited to try it for characters. Instead of having students keep track of all the characters in the novel, I'll have them keep track of one or two in depth. When we're done with our book, I'll have them compare and contrast the characters.
This strategy would also work well for settings or interesting words.
I'm excited for them to try this new format in their notebooks!
