This Journaling system is used in conjunction with my Precept of the Week Unit, which is based off the book Wonder by R. J. Palacio. Each week I post one of the precepts on the board. The students then have one week to write a response to the precept.
The year is divided into four nine week units and each nine weeks requires different requirements for that time period. Beginning easier and ending up with more thought provoking responses.
The student copies the precept in their journal each week and then progresses to their response.
