What does the Process Journal Look Like?

  • This is a generic term used to refer to the documentation that students develop

  • It can take on many forms!

  • It can be written, visual, audio or a combination of these and may include both paper and electronic forms

  • Many students should already be familiar with this as they’ve had experience in the arts and technology

  • Students must show evidence of regular use of the journal, NOT necessarily weekly
