The Journal's purpose is to
1) get you to read;
2) learn how to summarize and/or paraphrase (critical skills
for ENG 102/Research);
3) get you writing (and therefore thinking) about what you read.
entry should be about a page and a half, minimum.
2. Include all bibliographic information about the source--titles, authors,
3. Must make direct reference to material in source, but journal is not just a retelling of article.
The journal needs to include your insight, your reactions, etc. Nothing earth-shattering, perhaps, but it must be there.
