LC Module: Oral Reading Logs

“As a whole class activity, each student shares one thing from his or her learning log with the class, which creates a class discussion with input from each student. Many students find it easier to share with the whole class when they have previously written their thoughts on paper.” (Hurst & Pearman, n.d.)
“The process of using learning logs involves developing thinking and learning skills, which are enhanced by a peer partnership system. The learning log is not an in depth assessment tool but more of a snapshot of what the students have or have not understood in their lesson material.” (Wikipedia, 2015).
