"I use reading response journals in a variety of ways as a part of our literature circles," explained Laura Candler, a fifth grade teacher at E. E. Miller Elementary School in Fayetteville, Noreth Carolina, and webmaster of Teaching Resources and Candler Kids.About once a week, just before the literature circle meeting date, Candler has her students write a full response to the book they are reading.They choose a fiction or nonfiction prompt based on the material they are reading, and they are free to select any prompt or make up their own. Journaling AdviceA strong believer in the value of reading response journals, Laura Candler has these suggestions for teachers who are starting to use them in the classroom:Think of journals from the student's point of view. "When we gather for our meeting, each student reads his or her entry, and the rest of the group comments on what was written," reported Candler.Candler is careful not to overdo the use of journals.She wants the students to enjoy their reading, and using journals everyday can make them dread the writing.Collection of the journals usually takes place when the class finishes a literature circle book, and Candler makes comments about what the students have written.Through journals, she gains insight into her students' character as well as what they are thinking about the book they are reading."In a recent literature circle, the students were reading The War with Grandpa by Robert Kimmel Smith, a wonderful book about a boy whose grandfather comes to live with his family," recalled Candler.
