Transcript of Junior Certificate Religious Education Journal Guide

Compulsory for both Higher
and Ordinary Levels Stage Three - Practice Booklet Range of Skills Choose a title that you feel interested in, comfortable with or that you would like to do. Write it out WORD FOR WORD into your copy or journal file.

Decide whether you are going to work on your own or as part of a group - can you work with others? Will they do their share?

Map out how you are going to explore or attempt to complete your work on this journal - you may wish to use brainstorming or the check list in your books on page 475.

List EVERYTHING you could possibly do as this will come in handy later on in the journal process!

Decide which of the key research methods you are going to use. Stage Two - Participation This is where all the 'real' work takes place!

Each time you do work on your title write down how long you spent, what you did, what you thought of each part and rate the effort you put in - this all counts when writing up the journal!

If you are in a group pay particular attention to the task you have been assigned, but also what everyone else is doing.

Stage Four; how did the journal work impact on you - what did you learn, how will this info affect you, what part of the course did this work remind you of (2 examples) what skills did you use & why (2 examples)?

Stage Five; here you are asked to think about the journal work you have completed and describe what you really enjoyed about it, what changes would you make, would you recommend this title to a student doing the journal work next year & why? Don't use facts here but your opinion! You need to know what each one is, but more
importantly be able to use two of them and explain how you used them when completing your Journal work!
