As they read, students will examine the essential question, "How does technology impact society?"
After students chose their novel, we completed a reading calendar to help them stay on track with finishing their book. The calendar serves as a bookmark and a note-taking tool. They fill in the page they should be on at the end of each day. This is also a quick way for the teacher to see if they are on target to finish in time.
See the bookmark/calendar here.
Here's a sample that shows how it should look after the kids do the math :)
