What is a Reader's Notebook?

The Reader's Notebook is at the core of the work of middle school language arts. It is a place for kids to risk, to think, and to wonder about their reading and the world around them; it also gives children a place to practice the hard work of reading and writing in a personalized manner.  Inside a notebook, you will find lists of books to read, lists of completed books, daily reading logs, personal vocabulary inquiry, and responses to reading.

The notebook serves as an essential artifact of reading growth and a place for the teacher to better understand a student's strengths, challenges, how to push and better support them.  Due dates and expectations for the RNBk can be found on the toolbar to the right of this post.
