I have been considering doing a weekly reading log for my next year teaching, but am really unsure if I should or not. I attempted to do one last year, but found that only half of my students brought it back. I was considering having it due only on Friday, so that I wouldn't have to check it everyday and give them the flexibilty to break up their needed weekly 100 minutes however they choose. I just am not sure if these are even effective though. Any thoughts or opinions on what y'all think about them? Are they helpful and worth it? Or are they just a waste of time?
