To transfer interactive questions to a journal on this website

  1. Go to the page that has the interactive questions for the questions you want, e.g., Chapter 1. (Remember to right-click when you want to open a new page without losing the one you are on.)

    NOTE: This website does not have sufficient memory to download and answer all of the questions in a single online journal.

  2. When you cursor is on the page you want, press Ctrl+A (the Control key and the letter A at the same time). This will highlight everything on that page.

  3. Press Ctrl+C. This will copy the entire page into your computer's memory.

  4. Click on the Option A tab at the top of your screen.

  5. Scroll down to the bottom and click on the button labeled "Start or edit my journal." A text box with an ivory background will appear in its place.

  6. Move your cursor into that ivory colored box and click anywhere within it. This will activate the text box.

  7. Press Ctrl+V to insert the highlighted page into the text box. You have now created you own private journal. 

  8. Scroll below the text box and click on the button labeled "Save changes." The text box will disappear and you will see your personal journal on a page with a light blue background.

To continue working in the journal

  • Open your journal any time by going to the Option A page and clicking on "Start or edit my journal."

    The next time you open your journal, you can clean it up a bit by highlighting and deleting the words above "Questions for Chapter 1."

  • Every time you work in your journal and click on "Save changes," the questions and all of your answers will be saved.

  • You will not need to use any of the buttons at the top of the text box, but you may experiment with them to see what they do. If you click on a button and do not want to live with the results, click on "Revert" at the bottom of the page.

    NOTE: Because of storage limits on the website, at some point you will need to delete the old contents of your journal before inserting new questions. (You can always copy and save your responses in your own computer.)

Here is how to relate the questions to the material in the book

  1. You will find a small box like this * in the margin of the book wherever there is an interactive question related to the material nearby.
  2. To find the correct question, look on the website for the question with that page number. If there is more than one question on a page of the book, the question number is followed by a letter. For example, the second question on page 44 is labeled 44b.

  3. After you read the question, write out your response.

  4. To evaluate what you wrote, or if you are not sure how to answer, you may use the following symbols. 



"I stand strongly behind my response."



"I feel comfortable with my response."


"I have answered the question but I am unsure of my response."



"I am not sure what is being asked for in this question."

NOTE: If you get baffled by a particular question, struggle with it for a while and then continue reading the text. More often than not, the text itself will provide clues for a response and you can return to the question later. If you have finished reading a chapter and you are still baffled by one or more questions, please talk with your course instructor or write to me at
