Journal writing | English homework help

  Please read the guideline and I post the example journal writing. And here is the material link that you have some ideas. 

I. Journal Responses: Close Reading and Cultural Connections 

Length: At least 250 words

Journal entries are critical responses to the texts that we read. You draw elements or themes from one text (ie. short story) and connect your ideas to any one of the weekly materials in the module that I have labeled “Supplementary Content” (ie. links, videos, PPTs, etc.). You must closely read the text and provide an answer that includes a quote or paraphrase from the text, in-text citation(s), and a Works Cited. You must also draw a connection to any of the supplementary content I provide. Include your in-text citation(s) and Works Cited. Citations are covered in the MLA handout; however, this should be a review from ENGL 1302. 

The journal entry assignments will close after the due date and time ends. Every other week, you must submit a short journal response. The journals must only cover the corresponding week’s material. 

I am not looking for a summary of the material; rather, I am looking to see your engagement and understanding of the readings by your comments. A good place to start would be to simply determine whether you liked/disliked/agreed/disagreed with a portion of the text, then to elaborate on your judgment by explaining why you responded in this way and how draw comparisons to the supplementary material. Please use one of the following approaches (or something very similar): 

1. Personal Reaction

A. Complete one of the following statements by referring to a particular incident in the reading.

1. “I was struck by_____________”

2. “I was confused by___________”

3. “I was surprised by___________”

B. Include your quotation or paraphrase from the text with citation ie. (Naviq). (Note: This is an example of a correct in-text citation for an online source without page numbers).

C. Explain how your thoughts relate to a portion of the supplementary content (ie. link, video, PPT, etc.). Provide your in-text citation(s).

D. End your journal entry with a detailed explanation of your comparison between the text & supplementary content.

E. Provide a Works Cited for your sources. For assistance, review MLA handout.

2. Parallel Story

A. Tell your own personal story that was triggered by the reading.

B. Include your quotation or paraphrase from the text with citation ie. (Naviq). (Note: This is an example of a correct in-text citation for an online source without page numbers).

C. Include events and experiences that were either similar to or different from the reading, and explain how your story and the reading are related to each other.

D. Explain how your thoughts relate to a portion of the supplementary content (ie. link, video, PPT, etc.). Provide your in-text citation(s).

E. End your journal entry by stating the theme/moral/lesson learned from your story.

F. Provide a Works Cited for your sources. For assistance, review MLA Handout

3. Double-Entry Journal (What or Why Questions)

A. Create two separate columns on your page.

B. In the left column, keep a running list of “what” or “why” questions that occur to you as you are reading.

C. When you are finished with your questions, go back to the top of your list and answer your questions as completely as you can in the right column. (If you don’t know the answer, take a guess!)

D. Include your quotation or paraphrase from the text with citation ie. (Naviq). (Note: This is an example of a correct in-text citation for an online source without page numbers).

E. Explain how your thoughts relate to a portion of the supplementary content (ie. link, video, PPT, etc.). Provide your in-text citation(s).

G. Provide a Works Cited for your sources.
