[ORDER SOLUTION] Dialectical Journal Directions
For this assignment you will be reading from our online textbook. However, before you get to that I want you to go to the files section of Canvas and download or review the 3 documents in the folder titled Dialectical Journal Handouts. The handout titled Dialectical Journal Directions explains what a dialectical is and discusses the different parts that make up a dialectical journal entry. The handout titled Dialectical Journal Example handout shows examples of dialectical journal entries. I found this example online, and if you didnt know by reading through the passages the sample entries include passages from Sandra Cisneross House on Mango Street. I included this example handout so you can see examples of passages that are picked and how you are to respond to the passages you choose from your reading assignments. I want you to notice how the second response entry includes very personal reflections know you are free to engage with your chosen passages however youd like, even including personal connections. This example document also gives you an opportunity to see how a dialectical journal should look. This example handout only includes 2 passages and reflection entries, whereas the dialectical journal assignments assigned in this class will ask for you to find 5 passages and reflection entries. Youll notice that the example document included page numbers for each passage this is a good idea because if later in the semester the student wants to revisit a passage that stood out to him/her the student would just come back to the dialectical journal entries and the page number can help her/him find exactly where the passage is in the text. Because we are using an online textbook there are no pages, but what you can do is include the chapter, section, and passage. For example: 1.1 paragraph 3. The third document, titled Dialectical Journal Template, is a template Microsoft Word document that you can download and use to produce your dialectical journals for the various reading assignments youll be doing for this class. After reading through the Dialectical Journal Handouts you will read section 1.1 titled Overview: The Writing Process from our class textbook, Expression and Inquiry (Links to an external site.) , and use the Dialectical Journal Template document to produce a dialectical journal entry where you pick 5 passages from this reading and you write personal reflections for each of the 5 passages. *to help you out I have hyperlinked the title of our textbook to the page of our online textbook you will be reading for this assignment.
