read the morning they came for us dispatches from syria and write 2 journals

submit two (2) reading journals reflecting your reading of Janine di Giovanni’s The Morning They Came for Us: Dispatches from Syria. The first journal will cover chapters 1-5; the second: chapter 6-Epilogue. In each journal, answer the following questions:

  • What were the main ideas that stood out to you in this part?
  • What specific historic events were referenced in this part that advanced your understanding of the Syrian war? Were the dates, locations, and participants of those events identified?
  • What was the most memorable idea/conversation/story in this part?
  • Provide at least three (3) of your favorite quotes from this part (re-type, or copy/paste to clipboard if you are using an electronic book; no screenshots or pictures of the pages, please).
  • Provide any other reflections inspired by this reading

Each reading journal entry must be typed and uploaded to Blackboard as a Word attachment. As this is your journal, there are no strict format requirements, as long as you answer all the questions thoughtfully and comprehensively. As a guideline, without quotes from the book, your journal entry should be at least 400 words, no maximum.

The first journal is due in 12 days.
