Using reading diaries in independent learning.
Reading diaries (and optional ‘reading question’ diary prompts) are used to encourage year three English, and English and Film BA (Hons), students to develop their self-directed learning. Since critical theory can be daunting, the independent study – that is, extensive theoretical reading – is often experienced by students as a formidable task, so the idea was to provide a support structure to enable them to not only be able to persevere despite the challenge, but also to increasingly see themselves as confident interpretative agents, able to engage with and challenge the texts from their own position.
