Readers Response Journals

In fictional texts, the characters often change in some way as a result of what happens to them. Often times the character is different at the end of the story from the way they were at the beginning or they may know something at the end that they didn’t know at the beginning. If you recently finished a book club book, write your response using that book. The other groups will be finishing up their book this week and may use that book to write your response.

Assignment.
Response 1. Identify a character in your book. Explain what character traits they showed in the book. Explain how they change throughout the book. Be sure to provide examples/evidence from the book.
Response 2. Use any of the reading strategies that we have used to write your second response. Be sure to provide examples/evidence from the book.
