Sample text

I so enjoyed my day at the New Hampshire track that I wrote an article about it for a motorcycle magazine that published rider stories. In “Trusting My Tires, Trusting Myself” (BMW Owners News, April, 1994) here’s a passage that reveals what became of the hasty journal entry: Twice in the afternoon I leave the track a few minutes early, so tired I scare myself, aware now among Stirling Moss fantasies, the draining concentration it takes to drive for even thirty minutes with total, absolute, one hundred percent attention—anything less and you’re off the track, into the barricades, into the grandstand wall, embarrassed or maybe dead.

After reading the chapters for the second time, I’m beginning to see a sequence or passage of ideas from chapter to chapter. If you read the material twice, review your notes, and keep a journal, connections are bound to happen. In Kevin’s case, he is pulling it together, and the journal is a helpful part of this process. RESPONSES TO READING A colleague of mine who teaches the History of Science asks his students questions about their reading that are to be answered in their journals. He enjoys it when students write entries such as the following: #17 What did Darwin find on the Galapagos Islands?

Now look at the next example, Figure 3-3. Here the student began to ask a question during lecture, and in the process of writing out the question, figured out the answer. ) In the last example, Figure 3-4, a similar process is at work. This student not only realizes that “the peptide bond” is the answer to the question, but decides to share the discovery with the instructor to thank him, apparently, for the opportunity of asking questions in the questions box in the first place. The principle at work in the last two examples is a powerful one: the act of saying how and where one is stuck or confused is itself a liberating process.
