For this journal, choose one passage (a few sentences or lines) from The Hobbit that stands out to you. Then write a minimum of 200 words that explains why you chose that passage.
Answer questions such as, “Why did this passage stand out in the reading? What about the passage speaks to you? How does this passage connect to your life, or what does it remind you of? How can you connect this passage to what we’ve been talking about in class?”
The reflection should include:
a. The quote from the reading, including page numbers.
b. The student response, a minimum of 200 words. In parentheses after the response, include the word count for only the response. The quote is not counted in the total word count for the reflection.
These responses will be scored for insight, thoughtfulness, development, connections, and integration of course material.
