Aliki Dragona Explaining the Dialectical Notebook What is this? How do I write it? Here is how the dialectical notebook work (and please take a look at the sample dialectical notebook I created for another class): While you are reading, take notes on your reading on the left side of your “computer notebook.” Or you can handwrite in a real notebook if you don’t mind typing it all up later on. For each response, keep a couple of pages of left side entries and a couple of pages of right side entries. The notes on the left side of your notebook can be direct quotes or notes as you are reading. Note what is important to you as a reader who is actively and critically engaged with the text. Keep the right side of your notebook blank while you are just working with the left. Then, after you have finished the whole chapter, take a look at the notes and/or direct quotes you kept and start a dialogue with yourself. Why did you keep that note? What was important at the time?

What students are saying

    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.
