Question: What can be learned about students’ reading comprehension from their journal entries?
Answer: The teacher can learn from journal entries what students understand or don’t understand about the lesson’s content.
Comment: It doesn’t take long to read journal entries by students if you don’t correct the entries. Note writing problems for later teaching. Or underline the problems in red without comment. RayS.
