Product Description
So what is a dialectical journal? A dialectical journal is a conversation between the reader and what she is reading. This process is an important way to understand a piece of literature. By writing about literature, you make your own meaning of the work in order to truly understand it. When you do this yourself, then the text belongs to you--you have made it yours. The passages are there for everyone to read; however, the connections and interpretations are uniquely yours. You are neither right nor wrong in your response. So be willing to take risks and be honest.

This product includes an explanation of the assignment, an elements of stylistic devices checklist, a rubric, and a template.

This journal assignment can be applied to any piece of literature.
