FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Reading Journal Accompanying the Novel GHOST Distance Learning”

by Versatile Teacher Toolkit ESL and ELA Resources
8th - 10th Grade

Free reading journal accompanying Jason Reynold's novel Ghost. Ideal for independent reading at home or in class. Also compatible with Google Drive™. Plus, a fillable form field PDF file is also included, so learners could complete the document on their computer. I have designed this document for Grade 9 ESL learners, however, you may find it useful for students below or above this grade level. Thank you for downloading this resource. Link to a Google Slide file is also included.

UPDATED: Link to a Google Slide™ file is also included, so you can share this document with students on your Google Classroom™.

⭐The downloaded file contains:

  • Teacher directions: teaching tips and clickable links to an online article and the book trailer to stir up students' interest in reading the novel
  • Reading journal: note-taking graphic organizers requiring learners to gather information about the characters, vocabulary (difficult words), main events in the chapters, and important questions they want to discuss with their peers.
  • A PDF and PPT file containing fillable form fields you can share with your students using a password-protected platform, so they can complete the reading journal on a computer.
  • Google Drive™ -friendly: Link to a Google Slide™ file is also included, so you can share this document with your students in your Google Classroom™.
  • A PDF document you can print and distribute to your students in class.
