Reading Journal Instructions
Double-Entry Reading Journal: The reading journal is where you will record quotations from our main texts and your responses to each quotation. I will ask for a minimum of 4 quotations and responses for each story/chapter we read; 12 entries each for Brand New Ancients and Hedwig and the Angry Inch; and 4 entries for each poem.
Each response should be a short paragraph, 50-60 words, discussing what you find interesting or important about the quotation. When you enter a quotation in your journal, please use signal phrases or another method to introduce your quotation, and cite page numbers. Also, number your entries. Your reading journal must be typed and must have a word count for each chapter’s entries.
One option for format is to have two columns, just like the sample journal below. In this case, you should also have rows so that the quotation is next to its corresponding response. This is the easiest format for me to scan quickly.
- Another option for format is to not have columns; instead, you can list the quotation first and then follow it with your response. Like so,
1) The narrator explains, “ And then he’d be there: La Jolla and its emerald beaches. Hollywood. Los Beberly Hills. Stars and nights clubs and haute couture. Tacho was ready” (59).
It seems like they have ambitions to go to America and see all the famous places in LA. To go to all the clubs and all the flashy stars that are in LA. This is a call to Tacho to go to America because that is the place he’s really into. And there will be more people like him.
- Quotations should be a phrase to a couple of sentences; don’t put a whole paragraph. Responses should be at least 50 words. For each text, it’s okay for some responses to be a little shorter if other responses are a little longer.
- Use your annotations for ideas for your responses: responses can be reactions, questions, predictions, connections, or even definitions if they give you more insight and you explain that. You can also combine a variety of these. Avoid summary in your responses.
- Use signal phrases or another method to introduce quotations; Use MLA citation for each quotation.
- Number each entry for a text consecutively.
1. The narrator explains, “ And then he’d be there: La Jolla and its emerald beaches. Hollywood. Los Beberly Hills. Stars and nights clubs and haute couture. Tacho was ready” (59). It seems like they have ambitions to go to america and see all the famous places in LA. To go to all the clubs and all the flashy stars that are in LA. This is a call to Tacho to go to america because that is the place he’s really into. And there will be more people like him. 2. Nayeli thinks, “ A long journey far from home, predatory men and Mexican police, bandits, injuries, car wrecks, kidnapping, slavers, pimps, drug pushers, illness, jails, Tijuana” (59) Some of the girls just started to realizes that this long trip that they are going on is not the safest for them. Since they are young women and can be easily taken and raped, kidnapped and many other things that could hurt them or that their friends and family may never see them again and may not know where they are. That is why they need to travel with a man or someone that is good a protecting them. 3. Aunt Irma explains that “ The Americanos are kind. Friendly people. Generous people. They have quaint customs-they aren’t really, shall we say, sophisticated like we are. You can’t drank the water-it will give you diarrhea. But it’s very clean there. Good food. You’ll see” (62). It is hard for people that are first coming to America and the people don’t know that much English and the Americans aren’t that friendly towards the people. So that makes really hard for them to adjust to this new country. It was hard for them also to grow accustomed to the culture and also the food and water because it cause them to get very ill. 4. This shows a common plight of recently arrived immigrants: “ The bank converted the pesos and coins into American greenbacks, giving Nayeli $1,256. Yoloxochitl had $150 from her family and $65 in pin-tending money. La Vampi had $35. Tacho handed Nayeli $50 of his own. “It’s your tips, m’ija. She split it with Vampi” (64). When the girls went to the bank to get their money from pesos converted to American dollars. The girls found out how much money each other had. Since Nayeli had the most money out of all of them she was nice and gave some of the money to Vampi. So that she could get some things for herself while they where on this long trip. It seems like they are all going to help each other on this trip even though they may not have that much money.
