This is for Journal Entries. Each book should have 2 – 3 journals each, so 2 journals on each page.
Topics for the Journal are open. You can use items that have been suggested during the course, and you can create your own topics. In either case, the entries are not rough notes, but complete short pieces of writing. The complete journal–including all the works–should not exceed a total of 3,000 words.
The format for the journal consists of one overall document made up of two or three entries for each work. The entries will consist of your observations, commentaries and assessments of the works.
You can include connections to the present time and you can make comparisons among the various works of the semester or just treat the works individually. Do not include plot summary.
As with the paper, sources should be acknowledged by specific citation, stating where ideas and quotes come from. Citations need to include author, title of work, publisher, and page number(s) or website address. Copying work or ideas and presenting them as your own is plagiarism. Plagiarism, cheating and other forms of academic dishonesty are academic violations subject to failure for the semester and/or expulsion.
