High School Resource: Guided Journal 

journal, papers, documents

High School Resource

Guided Journal

In this unit, students, posing as fictional adults, write a journal. They complete a journal entry every week during the school year, after completing the Dossier handout that defines the qualities of the journal character (e.g., age, nationality, employer, education, etc.). Journal entries are a minimum of two pages, and are submitted on a regular basis for review by the teacher. The teacher may suggest a theme for the journal entry, or the student may wish to continue entries as the ongoing thoughts of the fictional writer. Occasionally, specific grammar requirements are assigned by the teacher. At least four times during the school year, the students read their journal entries aloud and answer questions from the class.
