Reading Journal -- 1984
Reading is an active process that requires reflection and analysis. Reading journals allow the reader to respond to what they read. To complete this task well, you need to show that you are thinking critically and deeply about the topic. You can use the following prompts to help you write reading journal entries. You will not be graded on your grammar or spelling. This is an exercise in thinking.
