RUBRIC FOR WEEKLY JOURNAL ENTRIES
Reading for Trimester #2: Grade 5/8
This trimester you will be expected to read three books, each from a different genre. This trimester’s genre study will focus around fantasy, science-fiction, and realistic fiction. Each week, you will pass in two journal entries that correspond to your reading. Journal entries are not meant to be painful or busywork; they are intended to help you think about what you are reading, make connections, and process the ideas presented in the books you read.
Trimester #2 Book Talk: Please write down titles / take notes on plots of books you think may interest you as they are discussed in class. You may also make note of any books you think may fit these categories that are not mentioned in the talk. Please be sure to choose a book that will be a reasonable fit for your reading level.

Questions: _______ out of 5
Journals: ________ out of 5
***Tuesday mornings will be working breakfast / homeroom days. This means that when you come in for school, you should be prepared to share your questions and journals with your editing cohort. You will use the fifteen minutes of breakfast / homeroom to work through difficult questions, peer edit each other’s work, and make any additions necessary before sending the assignments off to Kurt. You will have until 12 PM Tuesday to make any necessary changes and send in your work. If your work is not sent on time to Kurt, Mrs. Day, and Miss DeAngelis, it will result in an Academic Study slip. Also, you will not be allowed to participate at the boat shop that Friday. ***
