Weekly reading journals are designed to encourage critical reflection on your reading and writing practices. Since this course examines the ways in which literacy practices reflect and shape worldview and our sense of identity and belonging, reflecting on your reading and writing practices presents an opportunity to reflect, also, on how you approach problem-framing and problem-solving, participation in civil discourse, and participation in the linguistic or discursive life of the communities you belong to.
For this reading journal, please answer the questions below in a minimum of 400 words.
In this module, we have encountered various expressions of literary modernism: from self-referential poetry, Native American Indian memoir, African American poetry and memoir, and Mexican American fiction.

What lingering questions do you have about any of these texts or various literary modernisms?
