Product Description

The two-column journal helps students make connections to the novel Things Fall Apart. Students use their completed journal entries during Socratic Seminars or text rendering activities.

Background

Dialectical journals reflect Socrates’ philosophy of inquiry where one seeks to answer questions through reflecting, thinking, and questioning. In The History of Philosophy, Thomas Stanley (1655) describes the dialectical process as discourse using short questions and answers. Both of these definitions are valid for our use.

Pay close attention to your mind’s movement as you read, and you will notice that you are constantly asking questions, making connections, making predictions, seeking clarifications, pausing for reflections, and forming opinions of the text. The Reader’s Response Journal will help you to become an active and critical reader because you will be writing about your thoughts as you read the text.

Performance Task Information

o Use your best handwriting, grammar, spelling, and mechanics.

o Create at least one entry for part 1 of the novel (chapters 1 – 13).

o Bring your journal to each class to use during our text rendering activities.

o For the “Title” section, create a unique title for the chapter to help you remember the key events.

o The total score for the journal is 200 points (10 points per chapter; 70 points for a reflective statement completed after you finish your journal)
