This worksheet is a great resource for every middle school/ high school English teacher. It works with any piece of literature of any length! Dialectical journals enables students to build on their understanding of what they are reading by questioning, critiquing, relating to society/culture and drawing connections to other pieces of literature as well as themselves.
I use it all throughout the year with my students and see improvements with the quality of their writing. As an added bonus, dialectical journals fit into Common Core standards!
