Learning (B)Logs

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Learning (B)Logs provide routine opportunities for students to reflect on their learning, to be more engaged in class, and to prepare for peer collaboration. Students are expected to copy the standard each day and to utilize note-taking strategies in class to assist with their logs. The following questions are to be answered daily in your learning log:

1. What did I do in language arts today?
2. What did I learn?
3. What did I find interesting?
4. What questions do I have about what I learned?
5. What was the point of today’s lesson?
6. What connections did I make to other ideas, lessons, or content areas?

Students will be expected to be prepared to share their logs in their collaborative groups, so they are encouraged to be thoughtful in their responses, write legibly, and clearly. There may be occasional opportunities to write the logs in class. However, this is to be viewed as a daily homework assignment.

    Today we learned about claim, evidence, and warrants. The thing that was most interesting was that everybody can have different claims, evidence, and warrants. The only thing I don’t get is what the point of the claim. The whole point of this assignment was to figure out what happen the story. I really couldn’t make any connections.

      You should consider revisiting your notes. The “point of the claim” is to assert your position on an issue or argument. Was this activity really just about “what happen the story”? How might this the skills that we are attempting to master be useful in the real world – in college or in the workplace?

    Today we learned about claim,s evidence, and warrants. The most interesting thing about the lesson is that we used claim, evidence, and warrant to solve a crime or mystery. I don’t have any questions about what I learned. The point of today’s lesson was to see if we understand claim, evidence, and warrant by doing that mystery. I can not make any other ideas, lessons or content areas.

    I think people should not have pocket knives because somebody might get stabbed or the person with the knife might stab someone. Then again I agree because if someone is threated or is getting beat on the person with the pocket knife can defend his or her self with the pocket knife. So, I disagree and a part of me agrees.
