As students read the novel 1984, they have to keep a reading log for each reading assignment. This handout outlines the reading dates, and their assignment for each due date. They have to summarize/analyze what they read, find important vocabulary words, and visualize a scene from their reading.
Also due when the journals are turned in are current, real-world connections. The students are forced to find articles, songs, pictures, etc. to connect the novel to present day.
This handout is an outline of the assignment for the students.
