I created a presentation in Google slides with a couple of prompts. I used animations so that the students wouldn't see the prompt until it was time, and silent reading instantly became a fun game! The room was filled with laughing, and page turning, and whispers of "I want to read that!" When was the last time a reading log or an online quiz caused a stir of echoes in the classroom?
Heather Marshall adapts the game Bring Your Own Book for the classroom. This involves a series of prompts to help think differently about what you are reading. Marshall also discusses creating your own prompts. This activity reminds me of the Hot Seat activity, where students are challenged to think more deeply about the text. I really like the idea of the Game of Quotes as a revision activity.
