Inside Out Chapters 4 and 5

Great, wonderful, terrific, fantastic ideas for getting my students started with writing and incorporating the journal into my class. I can clearly see how these will work in my regular classes. I am still trying to figure out how to fit it into my AP classes. We have so much to do in there, that squeezing in one more thing is difficult. Still, I am convinced that they need daily writing practice, so I will try.

My students love journaling, and it often serves as a platform to flesh out ideas for future writing and/or lessons. As I teach, I include topics of further examination or ideas for future prompts. Ultimately, however, my students always have a choice of journal topics. I just require them to do a certain number each six weeks. I also give them the write to keep certain entries private. This really gives them ownership of the process.
