Writing a Conversation: Journals in the College Classroom.
Jacobson, Jeanne M.
The advantages of using journals in the college classroom are their versatility and their transferability to teaching at every level. Three types of journal writing are very effective in engaging students in purposeful, repeated writing: individual journals in which student and teacher maintain a written dialogue throughout the course; class journals which are used by an entire class and are usually placed on library reserve; and cooperative learning group journals in which group members share ideas with each other and the teacher. Additionally, the teacher and students can share ideas about improving journal formats. An example of these other formats is the multiple, themed, class journals in three-ring binders, with titled covers, with contributions on the top half of a page and comments on the lower half, which are shared across classes.
