The course includes many assigned readings. For each night’s worth of assigned readings, you must complete at least a two-page initial response in your journal. The journals can respond to one or all of the readings assigned that night.
Journal responses can include quotations from the reading that you find interesting, confusing, or conflicting. Write down why you’ve included the quotation and engage with it in a few sentences. Journal responses can note important takeaways from readings, lingering questions, analysis of the readings, and additional thoughts to explore.
Journals can be handwritten or typed and submitted via Canvas and will be checked on a credit/no credit basis throughout the term during conferences. Bring your journal to class every day as we will discuss your responses in class on many occasions. You can also use journal responses to help you write your papers.
