As you read, use close reading techniques to improve your understanding. Use any of the following starters for journal entries. Never summarize the text!! All journal entries are to be analytical exercises. Be sure to vary your entry types (don’t do the same thing over and over again). (approximately 750 words total).
I will choose:
Journals Options(you must choose 3)
Start with a quotation from a chapter and comment on it. Why is it important? Extend beyond the text itself. Your quotation should NOT correspond with a SparkNotes equivalent quotation.
Pull out a soliloquy or short scene from a play and analyze it. Why is it important? What is revealed, etc.? (this ONLY applies to a play)
Reading between the lines. Sometimes its what characters dont say that matters. Cite a passage and explain whats really going on. Be sure to show how you know it.
Write a song or poem for one of the main characters (be prepared to share)
Analyze the development of a dynamic character: how is it she/he grows, learns, etc.? Cite the specific passage you are referring to.
Cite and explain any ironic passage. How does irony function in the work?
Cite a passage and analyze the authors style: diction, syntax, tone, etc. Why do you think the author used this style for this work? How effective is the passage at achieving the authors purpose?
Select a character and write a letter to him/her. Explain why you agree/disagree with his or her actions in the story. Cite the passage from the story your letter refers to.
Important note: any time you cite a passage, it DOES NOT count toward the word count for your journal entry. You do not have to copy an entire passage though. ALSO DO NOT COPIE THE PASSAGES OR QUOTES FROM THE INTERNET ON SPARKNOTES OR SO.
