*Reading Notes:  As you read, you should have a critical eye.  What makes this book enjoyable?  Terrible?  What is the writer doing to keep your attention?

You might jot down:
- Quotes, passages (and page #)
- Character / Setting Descriptions
- Interesting dialogue or dialect
- Figurative language the author uses well
- Things you like/dislike about the plot, setting, characters, descriptions, etc.

Use sticky notes, a notebook, take pictures with your phone...whatever works best for you to keep track of what you're noticing in your reading.

In class on Reading Days, I will be checking your page numbers and notes, as well as discussing your book with you.
