My Journey With Learning Logs

Abstract: Learning logs, or reading response logs, are an effective reading strategy that helps students learn from text. This article reports the use of such logs, with an added element of social interaction in which students were asked to share one entry from their logs with the class. Two studies were conducted to ascertain students' perceptions of the learning value of the strategy. The first consisted of 123 undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in education courses. The second study consisted of 547 middle … Show more

“…Proficient readers use strategies, such as forming visual images while reading, connecting the information to practical situations or previous knowledge, recalling settings and events that are similar to that which is being read, predicting, and asking questions (Hurst, 2005;Guthrie & Alvermann, 1999;Boakye, Pretorius, & van Dyke, 2012. Readers who use a wide range of appropriate reading strategies, such as those mentioned above, have high reading proficiency levels and perform better academically (Nel, Dreyer, & Klopper, 2004;Singhal, 2001).…”

“…They tell what they found interesting and why. I have used this strategy for years and have done studies with students in middle school, high school, and college and have found the strategy actually gets students to read the text, which can seem like an insurmountable task for many teachers (Hurst, 2005). I have also found that after every student in the class has talked about one thing they learned from the text, by the time we are finished, we have fairly well covered the material, and I did not have to lecture.…”
