Writing is a recursive process.
When students learn to write, they're not just putting words on a page. They're constructing arguments, analyzing information, and learning to speak to different points of view.
The writing process offers students the chance to carefully consider the information they consume. Whether they're taking notes, reflecting on the day, or composing a piece of formal writing, it's the act of drafting, reviewing, and revising that helps students develop a critical thinking habit.
For decades, Writing to Learn activities have been used to spur this learning and writing process. In this 35-minute webinar, ThinkCERCA's Director of Partnerships and Director of Curriculum & Instruction will explain how educators can leverage Writing to Learn concepts to guide student through composing a piece of writing.
