I’m working on a handbook for reading for my upcoming BER seminars, so I’ve been focused on reading lately and I want to share some tidbits early.

Dual Entry Reading Journals are a tool to measure reading comprehension with a medium level of accountability. With this form, students can show that they understand what they are reading and are reflecting on it as they do, but it doesn’t smother them with detailed questions.

DO NOT use this form every time they read or students will be reading only to fill out the form and not reading for meaning like we want them to.

Download the Dual Entry Journal Form here.  You are free to use it with your students.

See Examples of Spanish 1 students’ completed Dual Entry Journals here and here.
