Ms. Kent TWU Spring 2008 Logs You have noticed in the general information about the course that I want you to turn in a “log” each day of class that you have a reading assignment. So what’s a reading log? It’s an informal, thoughtful, honest reaction to and analysis of whatever has been assigned for the class to read that day. They are designed to help you prepare for major writing assignments by working with your own experiences, unpacking the reading assignments, and generating an informed response you can apply to your more formal writing assignments. One purpose is to show me you have indeed read the assignment. But just summarizing the assignment won’t make a good log. A second purpose is to show you in the act of thoughtful, analytical, and/or critical reading . (You may also sometimes “read” other topics as discussed below.) Logs tremendously valuable for a whole list of reasons: 1. Logs show me that you are doing your reading , even if you are quiet in class. 2. The best way to understand what you have read is to write about it. The log requirement means that you are not finished with your homework when you finish reading and marking a text. Next you have to respond in writing .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
