Project #49618 - Reading Journal 3 for Early American History

Must be 4 pages long. The book is Gastil and Harris, Connecting California:  Selections in Early American History, Volume I. And this journal is on chapters 5 to 7. Please use the reading handouts as a guide.

 

 

 

Reading Journal for Early American History

 

In the journal you will write reflections and observations on your reading in Connecting California.  Each time you write, please focus on a few related documents in the book.  You may also comment on parts of our main textbook that you see as related.  Examine each document critically, and consider how it adds to our understanding of the history or the cultures.  You may also write your own reflections on what you are learning, and perhaps relate your learning to other courses or experiences.

 

You get about five points for each four pages you write.  (You will turn in the Journal three times.)  Please double space and use a font that is about as large as what I am using here (Times New Roman 12).  You may use any style, but please divide your writing into paragraphs so it is easy to read.

 

 

Journal Prompts

 

Here are some prompts that you might want to use:

 

1.   What did you learn from the documents in this section?  What did you find surprising?  How does the material in this chapter relate to what you learned earlier, perhaps in other classes?

 

2.   How does this section build on the section before it?  How does it set us up for what is coming next?  What events do you see here that have shaped the world we live in today?

 

3.   If you did a movie set in the time period of this section, what would be the key elements in your movie?  Tell how you imagine the characters, and what challenges they would deal with.

 

4.   Why is this section difficult, or not so hard, for us to understand today?  How might we understand the history differently from someone living in the time period? 

 

5.   Do you think people will react to this section differently, depending on their cultural background or life experiences?

 

6.   When examining a document or artifact:  How does it help you understand the era?  What are some important factors to consider when looking at this document?  Does the document answer questions you might have had, or does it just raise more questions?

 

7.   How does this section of Connecting California compare with what you are reading in the main textbook for this class?  Does your textbook cover what this section covers?  How so?
