Journal
Respond to the two questions below. These are discrete questions, so you can answer them in two distinct paragraphs instead of integrating the information within one response.
If you could write about anything, what would you write about? If your writing teacher simply said, “Write what you want,” where would you start?
If you weren’t taught the five paragraph form, what kind of form(s) have you been taught? How have you been taught to structure essays? What reasons have you been given for structuring your essays in these ways? 
Requirements
Journals should be more than 250 words and answer the prompt completely
The rubric includes a section for sources; please not that sources are not necessary for this response. All students will receive maximum points for this category.
