The Travel Journal: An Assessment Tool for Overseas Study. Occasional Papers on International Educational Exchange 27.
Arguing that journal writing is a particularly appropriate evaluation mode for travel experiences because it is a learning activity that encourages reflective observation, this booklet includes an instructor's guide for the student travel journal and a student's guide to writing a travel journal. The instructor's guide section discusses objective versus subjective journals, basic principles in setting up travel journals, and includes a journal evaluation form. The student's guide section deals with keeping a successful travel journal, thinking of writing as a three-step process, and some final questions and comments. Six notes are included; an appendix lists the editorial board of the International Educational Exchange, guidelines for submission of papers, and previous titles in the occasional paper series. (RS)
