Reflection: High Expectations Levels of Questioning and Answering - Section 3: Practice Double Entry Journal


Throughout the year, students have written analytical responses.  Double Entry Journals are a form of analytical writing, however, I want students to realize that they need to continue to support claims or reasons with evidence that assists them in arriving at the claims/reasons.  This is the first time we are practicing this style of writing in response to novels.  For this reason, I modeled examples, had them respond individually, and then share in their small groups so that each student could be comfortable to share and receive feedback about their interpretations.
