SPUNKI: A Reading Rubric

An acronym that asks students to answer six questions

"What part or parts of the reading did you find Surprising?

                     Puzzling?

                     Useful?

                       New?

                             Knew it already?

                     Interesting?"

Applying the prompts to any reading assignment invites students to respond personally to the material and make it their own. 
Students using SPUNKI are more enthusiastic about completing their reading assignments.
