Weekly Focus

MHS Weekly Focus is on Dialectical Journals

Dialectical Journals allow students to record their thought in preparation or a discussion with a partner, small group or entire class. This can take place in all subjects and at any time. This allows students and teachers to make connections with what they know and identify misconceptions. The following is a list of activities that students may do to interact with lecture notes, text, or video. With each activity students should divide their papers in half and place notes on the right side. They should then be instructed to respond to these notes on the left side in one or more of the following ways:

  • Create a graphic organizer(s) to visually represent the major ideas.
  • Write a one-sentence summary to capture the main idea.
  • Explain the significance of a particular piece of information.
  • Make an inference in terms of what a fact suggests about the time period, event, etc.
  • Create an analogy to show similarity between the relationships.
  • Develop a “what if” statement that speculates what might have happened if an event had not occurred or had occurred differently.
  • Make a connection to a similar event, which may have occurred recently or in the past.
  • Turn the title, heading, or subheading into questions.
  • Create new titles, headings, and subheadings for each section.
  • Write a simile or metaphor for an idea, event or person.
