This guide includes tips on writing common course assignments.

Review and Revise

After writing your jounal enty, review your ideas by asking yourself:

  1. Is my main idea clear and relevant to the assigned topic?
  2. Does my journal entry demonstrate evidence that I have read and thought critically about required readings, experiences, events, or issues?
  3. Have I proposed a unique perspective that is supported well?
  4. Do I support my claim with required readings or other credible outside sources?
  5. Have I used a scholarly tone, complete sentences, and adhered to other specific assignment requirements?
  6. Have I self-edited and proofread my response for grammar, style, and structure?
