what is the journal project
What is the journal project?
  • As we read the play, The Diary of Anne Frank, you will be keeping a journal.
  • You will be asked to write various journal entries.
  • Some will be written is first person and will ask you to put yourself Anne’s shoes. (figuratively speaking, of course)
  • Other entries will ask you to examine various aspects of the play.
  • Entries will be written in a journal that we will make in class today.
  • I will not accept entries written on individual sheets of notebook paper that are stapled together.
  • If you lose your journal at any point, you will have to rewrite ALL of the entries you had completed.


  • Each entry must be:
    • dated
    • one page in length, or longer
    • written in proper English
    • demonstrate deep and critical thinking
  • Journals will be graded for:
    • Completeness
    • Content
    • Grammar/spelling/punctuation
    • Adherence to requirements-did you follow directions?
    • Appearance-demonstrates time, effort, thought, looks age/grade appropriate.

Journal #4
  • While hiding in the attic you have disagreements with several of your “roommates”.
  • Describe the annoyances that you experience as well as the arguments that take place. What do you argue about? What habits of others do you find annoying? What do you do that annoys others? Who do you argue with the most? Why? How do you “escape” from your crowded surroundings and make time for yourself?
