Journal Expectations



Jour Prompt 1.1   Back to School - 2 single side pages (7th and 8th grade)

Explain what things are going well in school so far? What are you looking forward to? What things are you worried about in school? What was last year like?

When you finish answering the prompt you may fill up the rest of the pages with freewrite.






Journal Writing Expectations:7th and 8th grade students are expected to write at least four single side pages in their journal every week.  

    We will have time for journal writing on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Language Arts, but students will likely have to do some of their journal writing at home.  

 I will usually give specific journal prompts that students will be required to turn in, but students will also have free choice journaling time as well.

Journaling will be checked every two weeks.  

Your goal for journal writing is to improve your writing skills, feel more comfortable writing, and Have Fun!
