CREATING A JOURNAL
You are going to create a Journal in a WORD document. The Journal will have 10 entries over the semester. Each entry piece should be 3/4 -1 page in length.
I will review your Journal at half term and the end of the semester. Do each one in the week it is assigned as part of class activities. Be prepared to share your Journal in class at any time.
You will keep the Word document. Make sure to make a copy and update it weekly so it is not lost. Close to the end of term you will hand in the Journal for marking. The Journal will contain your 10 Journal entries.
Journal Entry 1 – What do you want to achieve?
Go to the link …….watch the first video…then write a reflection in the journal. Think about it where are you in your life? What do you want? How will you achieve it?
