The weekly journals will be used to develop a personalized academic writing plan that will fit into the Week 6 Personal Success Plan Assignment.
Each journal must be at least three paragraphs long, but you are allowed to write as much as you would like. These entries are meant to be free writing, but you should revise before submitting. Your journal entries will be graded on participation and do not have rubrics.
To prepare for writing your journal entry:Read the Montante article in this week’s Learning ResourcesReview the Academic Writing Expectations Checklist to guide your writingReview sample journal entries posted in an Announcement.
Think about the material you encountered in the course this week, and describe one aspect of the classroom resources (Assignments, Discussions, or assigned readings) that surprised you. Make sure to describe why the material interested you as a thinker.
Set a timer (on the stove, a clock or on your phone) and write for 10 minutes without stopping. The prompts will remain the same each week, but you will reflect about a different aspect of each week’s resources.
