In the Upper Unit, students’ Literature Journals are a chance for them to have a dialogue with a teacher about texts they are currently reading. This work has multiple benefits: writing their thoughts helps students to crystallize them, and also helps to make invisible thinking processes visible.

Literature Journals accomplish all of this in a fun and conversational way so that students don’t feel too much pressure, are drawn into reading, and enjoy the discussions rather than feeling like reading is a chore.
