Journal: Basics

This was one of the first journals that I completed. It was basically just looking at the surface factors of the story that we were reading. The things such as settings, characters, and conflict. This is important because it's the first stepping stone into analyzing the story as a whole.

Second Look Journal

This journal really encouraged me to look back other things that I have already read or watched before. I go into it with a different perspective and look for things I may have missed or just natural grow into a different opinion of. I feel like this is a good thing because it forces me to see the different perspectives of stories, movies, and shows.

Essay 3: Feminism in Mystery Stories

This assignment allowed me to look beyond the surface level of a mystery story. Not just at the obvious mystery going on, but the underlying labels as well. For this particular story and essay, there was a lot of feminism to discuss. There were a lot more feminist issues within the novel than I expected Issues that are also real world issues.
