Book Reviews bring a social aspect to Whooo's Reading, while also helping students choose what to read next. Book Reviews display on the Class Shelf for all classmates to see.
To see Book Reviews, a student can click Class, then Shelf, and then choose a book cover from the Shelf.
After a student has finished reading a book, they can rate the book and write a book review.
First, on the Student Dashboard, select Reviews from underneath My Goals, then search for your book in the book search below.
Students rate the book with 1-5 stars and then respond to a prompt that guides their review. The review prompts are different each time to keep students engaged and thinking:

If you would like to turn this off so that students cannot see each other's book reviews, you can do so in your Settings (click the drop-down in the top right, then Settings, then Class Shelf):
