This is an example of how I had students respond to an Article-of-the-Day set from ReadWorks.  I created a category for each of the articles and then had each student pick an article that they wanted to read.  When they were done, students posted something that they learned, found interesting, or a fact from the article.  

Record Student Reading

Having students record themselves reading can be very powerful for many reasons.  For students, It is a great way for them to hear what they sound like reading and gives them an opportunity to assess their own fluency.  As teachers, it provides documentation of student fluency and can help to monitor students progress.
