Journal Writing as a Means and an End.
Kirchoffer, Richard
Journal writing can motivate students to write frequently, thereby creating content which can later be properly structured. Students who keep journals tend to write better than those who do not. To help students explore certain ideas in journals further, teachers should ask questions or make statements that relate to the students' ideas. Sometimes the teacher has to provide happenings about which students may write, or a book may serve as a source for some of their writing. However, the teacher should be careful not to take away the students' freedom, for it is this freedom that produces those unexpected, happy moments that make reading student papers pleasurable rather than painful. Journal writing can be the means to a happy ending--good papers. (SW)
