Research Journals

You will receive a college ruled composition notebook. This is to be used for taking notes on Research Process and Scott McCloud chapters discussed in class as well as the following:

  1. Track your thoughts and feelings about the research process

  2. Pose questions and thoughts on your reading and graphic novel (annotations)

  3. Take note of sources you are finding: primary (your graphic novel), secondary, and other sources you encounter

  4. Track your development of research question and thesis statement

  5. Make notes of feedback during Writing Workshop process

  6. Pose questions and thoughts on your reading and graphic novel

I will ask to check in on what you find, and we will discuss some of what you have (it will inform our discussion) at your midterm conference. It will count as part of your midterm grade and will be turned in at the end of the course as potential bonus points on your final paper.
