Looking for a journal packet for students to use in your middle school or high school classroom? Originally created for a language arts/social studies setting, you can apply this journal to your subject for:
- Bell Ringers
- Exit Slips
- Independent Reading
In this download, you get a top journal sheet (student info and 2 spots for journal writing), additional journal sheet (3 spots for journal writing), and rubric. With the additional journal sheets, include as many as you would need in a packet for a quarter (I usually do 4-5). Attach the rubric to the back of the journal so that students are aware of the expectations.
The journal rubric allows for student self-selection and metacognition. Don't have time to read every journal entry for all your classes? The rubric cues students to select 2 of their best journal entries at the end of the quarter and using sticky notes, explain why they selected each entry.
