During the quarter, you should keep a typed or handwritten journal reflecting on all of the readings and documentaries assigned for each module (not including your textbook). Excellent journal entries will include critical reflections about the writing and its topic, as well as how it fits within the broader context of your textbook readings. This will be due at the end of the quarter and should be submitted electronically through Canvas (scans of handwritten journals are acceptable). There is no limit on the length of your reflections on the readings, however, on average, I would estimate that reflecting on each module’s material would need a minimum of 500 words. I will happily review your initial journal entries if you would like feedback. Reflections from each module will be worth 10 points for a total of 50 points.
