Title:
Writing is Thinking: Using Writing to Teach Science
Authors:
George, Greenstein
Abstract:
I discuss a pedagogical strategy in which we ask students to write about science. Such writing is to be done regularly and often, in class and out of class, in the format of brief “letters to a friend” and longer essays. The goal of this technique is not to teach students how to write; it is to use their writing to help them learn the science. Such exercises can be helpful even if the instructor never reads the students’ compositions.
