Mandy,

I really like the journal idea. I believe that this is something that every student can have and will not require to much class time for a teacher, because they can read entries when students have left school. I also think that you could just have generic questions that they students should always answer as they read, such as, "what's the problem of the story and how was the problem solved?"

Another idea is for you to have mini conferences while the students are reading you may only get to half of the students in the class each day, but this way you know in a short 1-2 minute discussion on whether or not they are comprehending what they are reading. During the conferences you may want to have sticky notes that you write down questions for the student to think of while reading for the next conference you may have with them. This keeps the student reading for a purpose.
