Commonplace Book

 

Throughout the semester you will work on developing a commonplace book, which is defined in the American Heritage Dictionary as “a personal journal in which quotable passages, literary excerpts, and comments are written.”  You are to select passages that speak most directly to you, with you commenting on why you find the passage so personally informative, compelling, stimulating, interesting, inspiring, helpful, or engaging.
