Read Arabic Literature:


Journals should be at least a page in length (double-spaced is fine). They can then provide fodder for conversations as well as simply provide new ways of looking at the texts for everyone in class.

Remember, an entry should always be about primarily one thing and always be worth writing and worth reading. Be sure to vary the kinds of journal entries you write. Try out different kinds of responses, different kinds of writing. Since journals will be a primary means of communicating your ideas to your classmates and to me, it is important that they be well thought out. Don’t be surprised that in writing, you begin to discover meaning in the reading that hadn’t occurred to you until just the moment you began to write. Feel free to draw upon your own interests, education, experience, and strengths as you explore the texts, and to bring questions to the conversation.
