Summer Reading Journal Guidelines

  • Summer reading journals should be neat and organized.

  • Written journal entries should be at least two (2) paragraphs in length.

  • There should be a minimum of five (5) journal entries.

  • Journal prompts may be repeated, but no more than twice.

  • Two (2) journal entries may take the form of your choosing (picture, cartoon, movie, audio recording. etc.).

  • Journals will be turned in when you meet with your faculty member.

Prompts

1. How are the characters developing and changing over the course of what you have read? What has influenced them to change (events in the story, other characters)?

2. Is any image or idea repeated over the course of what you have read? (symbol, motif)? Do you think this will be important to the story?

3. What are the conflicts in the book? Have you experienced similar conflicts? How does the way the conflict developed in your life differ from what you have read?

4. Do the characters in the story remind you of yourself, or people you know? What similarities and differences are there between the way they and you act or think?

5. Who is telling the story in your book? Would you have told the story differently?

6. If you could be a character in the book you read, which one would you be? Would you behave as he/she did? Would you make the same decisions and think the same thing?

7. Would you recommend this book to a friend? If so, what connection might they make with their life? If not, why would this book be uninteresting to your friend?
