I am implementing reader's workshop into my 6th grade classroom. I am going to have students write response letters to me in their reader's notebooks weekly which will count as a homework grade each time. At my school, homework is 25%, quizzes are 25% and tests are 50% of the students' grades. I'm trying to figure out what the students can do to fulfill the test and quiz grades. I thought of them writing book reviews, but this is something they will have to be taught and have modeled so I won't be able to do this right at the beginning. Does anyone have any other ideas or things that you use as test and quiz grades? I'm really struggling here. Thank you in advance!
