Overview
Your journal gives you the opportunity to engage with critical ideas about language from the classic text, Language in Thought and Action. These are ideas that we’ll rely on all semester, so it’s important to be familiar with not only their definition, but what they look like when we see them in action in our everyday lives. 
This assignment (all the journal entries combined) is worth 30% of your total course grade. Thus, you cannot pass the course unless you satisfactorily complete this assignment.
Learning Objectives
Hayakawa’s book touches on all of our course goals, so reflecting on topics from each chapter provides you with the opportunity to meet our course learning objectives. In fact, one of the questions you’ll consider in your entries is how the concepts from the book connect to these objectives. 
Some of the objectives that we’ll meet with this assignment include: 
Practice critical thinking by learning how to gather, consider, and evaluate evidence about the English language in use. 
Evaluate and assess the English language as it influences thinking and behavior.
Extend critical thinking skills by learning how to distinguish among kinds of knowledge and meaning, especially how English influences and creates knowledge and meaning. 
Explore the limits and qualifications of knowledge and language. 
Refine the ability to understand the role of the English language in thinking, speaking, and behaving ethically. 
Directions
Answer questions 1-5 for each assigned chapter of Language in Thought and Action; question 6 is optional. 
Each week’s entries should be in one Word document. For example, the entries for chapters 2, 4, and 5 should all be in the same document. 
Number each question. Your entries will not receive any credit until they are in this format. 
Assessment
Entries must have all five questions answered and numbered to receive credit. You will need to correct and resubmit them to earn points. 
Entries can be submitted late, but you lose 10 points on each entry for each week it is late. Late is significantly better than never! 
Each question is worth 20 points, making each journal entry worth 100 points. 
You can earn up to 20 points for each question by 
Clearly (5pts), correctly (5pts), and thoughtfully (5pts) answering the question that is asked (5pts). 
Revision
We’ve all been using language for most of our lives, so some of the concepts from the book will be more familiar to you than others, and you may not give a correct example or definition of the concept the first time. That’s okay; it’s part of the learning process. You have the opportunity to revise the entries for additional credit. If you don’t earn full points the first time you submit an entry, you can revise and resubmit.
