What is a book Conference
Book Conferences (10 % of quarter grade):
1) Book must be 300 pages minimum for an "A" grade. Two books of appropriate reading level can be read to create a total of 300 pages. It will be assumed that any book selected by the students has parent or guardian approval.
2) Books must be checked with Mrs. Krohne (who is looking for reading level appropriateness).
3) Book conferences may be done before the due date or on the due date, but not after the due date. No exceptions.
4) To do the book conference the book must be: (A) finished (if a longer book is selected, it still must be finished at the time of the conference), (B) with the student at the time of the conference, (C) The contents of the book must be comprehended by the student (if comprehension is an issue, take notes as you read and use them to study before the conference)
What is a book Conference?
It is a one-on-one discussion of the book that the student has completed. Mrs. Krohne will select a random page, and ask the student to read it. Then the student will be required to answer questions to show their comprehension of the book. The student will be given an "assigned date" during which class time is reserved for that student's conference. The student my make an appointment to do the conference early.
The conference is Pass/Fail. The grade the student gets will be determined by the number of pages that the student reads. (270-300 pages =A, 240-269=B, 210-239=C, 180-209=D, 179 and lower is an F, but some points will be given.)
