Reflection: Self-Talk Put It Together to Break it Apart: Creating a Dialectical Journal - Section 4: Building Knowledge: The Four Sections of the Journal


I should have realized that the scope of this journal was overly ambitious for the time we had to cover Othello before the end of the semester.  Ultimately, I will have to scale back my expectations for section 3 and 4 and just focus on section 1 and 2.  While I do touch on the 3rd and 4th sections, I do not have the time to cover these areas in the detail necessary for mastery.  I will have to come back to these standards again.
