Though this book had some obvious and repetitive sections, it is also a remarkable synthesis of the research into journal keeping. More important, it provides excellent ideas for how to use journals in a variety of (primarily) academic contexts.

Useful and practical. Very much focused on handwritten journaling, but then so are my students so that works. Good on matching journaling to assessable rubrics. So focused on being practical that it's kind of plodding, but I've got to get this course planned and it helped.

I was disappointed but judging from the fairly good ratings that I am seeing I may be biased. I was looking for writing prompts to use in reflective writing but this book is more for school students and teachers in educational institutions. Perhaps I should have been careful to read the subtitle before buying the book. Definitely not a book for serious teachers and facilitators of writing workshops to heal or those who are looking to find inspiration for reflective writing.

"The Book on Journals: But where Stevens and I found agreement on what journaling often is and shouldn't be, she and Joanne Cooper, coauthors of Journal Keeping: How to Use Reflective Writing for Learning, Teaching, Professional Insight, and Positive Change (Stylus 2009) have a deep understanding of the good that can come from journaling."

I LOVED this book. It has equiped me with a number of skills that will help me on my lifelong journey of learning and discovering who I am. It's my kind of self-help book!

I loved it so much that after returning my library copy I'm going to buy it for reference in the future.

The book is written in academic style, mainly I would say for professors and researchers in the field. It's not a really dry read, and I did learn a little more about the uses off journaling, especially in academic and professional settings. I would recommend though if you want to learn about journal writing for your own personal use, this not the book to read. I would have read and annotated the book faster if it were published as a Kindle ebook.
