As you interact with our guest speakers and the recommended readings and internet websites, keep a journal where you discuss your response to the ideas presented. In this way begin to connect these ideas to your own storehouse of knowledge and experience.
As you reflect, think and question, listen carefully to yourself and attempt to describe the effect of this course experience.
Let your responses connect to an idea, reject an idea, or create an idea. Find associations. See where they lead: to images; student experience; curriculum.
Respond thoughtfully. Write honestly. Expand upon our guest speakers' ideas. Attempt to discover your own ideas or position.
Prepare to share your journal entries in class with the whole group, with a partner, or within a group setting. Also prepare to respond verbally, or in writing, to the journal entries of other class participants.
The following "starters" may help you:
1. I began to think of...
2. I don't see...
3. I like the idea...
4. I like the way...
5. I can't understand...
6. I was reminded of...
7. Why did...
8. I agree with...
9. I disagree with...
10. It reminded me of...
Write down words, images, phrases, quotations, or details that impress you. Write why they impressed you. Carry on a dialogue with the guest speaker or with an author. Or, write a letter to the guest speaker or author.
Submit your response journal (with ten journal entries, one for each topic discussed) by the afternoon of July 23. Let me know which two journal entries you would like me to focus on when I review your journal.
