Journals in a Facing History Classroom

Source: Facing History and Ourselves

Journals make learning visible by providing a safe, accessible space for students to share thoughts, feelings and uncertainties. In this way, journals are also an assessment tool-something teachers can review to better understand what their students know, what they are struggling to understand, and how their thinking has changed over time. In addition to strengthening students’ critical thinking skills, journal writing serves other purposes as well. Journals help nurture classroom community.
