 ENG 270 Week 1 Reader Response Journal

Resource: Sample essays in Ch. 13 of Writing Essays about Literature

Write a journal entry of at least 350 words reflecting on the importance and value of literature. Answer the following in your reflection:




How is literature important for society?


How is literature important for the individual?


How does analyzing literature contribute to this value?


Note. Your journal entries will be graded on two criteria: how well you completed the tasks assigned and how well-written is the journal entry.




Task completion includes completeness and strength of reasoning. For example, did you answer all of the questions, did you explain your reasoning, and did you give supporting examples?


Quality of writing will be judged on clarity, organization, and mechanics. As this is a journaling exercise, you are not expected to adhere to any style guides for formatting; however, any outside citations you choose to include must be cited properly.
