Response journals require the students to write about what they felt while reading a book or listening to a story. Response Journals allow students to record feelings, responses, and reactions to reading texts. This strategy encourages students to think deeply about the materials they read and to relate this information to their prior knowledge and experiences. This interaction between reader and text extends the reading experience into the "real life" application of information.
Response Journals allow students to reflect on and raise questions about a text. These journals are especially valuable for promoting opinion making, value judgments, and critical thinking. This product is a thirty page response journal in which students can choose from three different covers for his/her journal.
