Journal Format Instructions from teacher:
One way of responding to what you read is to write about it. We will use the Journal
Module to do this. You should write 300-400 words for your journal response, unless it
takes more words than that to fully answer the question.
Include a word count for just your response.
Include the author’s name and the page number from the text in
parentheses to cite the quotes. If the primary work is online, simply put the author’s
name with no page number.
It is important to remember that you do not have to agree with me, or anyone else, for

example below for how this is done.
I will be very particular about journal responses. If you do not follow my directions
exactly you will lose points. I have included, at the bottom of these directions, the most
common mistakes students make that cause them to lose points. Make sure you have
NOT done these things.
I will make general comments about your work for each journal. If you wish to talk
about your grade or how to improve, I am always happy to meet with you, virtually or in
