Double Entry Journal –
The goal of this assignment is to
1) practice understanding of course materials
Instructions: Choose FIVE different sentences that you think are important from the assigned reading or course material. Copy each sentence down. Below each, write (in at least FIVE sentences) your reaction to that sentence.
Samples of this assignment are in the Double Entry Journal folder.
The main difference between receiving a “1” or “1.5” or “2” for this assignment is the depth of your discussion. An organized and well thought out discussion of the sentence that indicates to me you’ve done the reading and have thought out your reaction. Maybe the sentence reminds you of another course material, a personal experience, something you’ve observed. Feel free to write about your feelings about the sentence – perhaps you disagree with the author or are shocked by something the author has written. An in-depth discussion may include quotes from other readings or other sections of the same reading. This assignment will be graded in the following way:
Meets or exceeds required length and format. Detailed in-depth discussion of the sentence.
Meets required length and format. Partially detailed in-depth discussion of the sentence.
Meets required length and format. Not an in-depth discussion of the sentence.
Meets some of the required length and format. Poor quality discussion of the sentence.
Did not meet required length and format.
