Focus on What Matters: Learning Through Writing

November 9, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm


Writing as a tool for learning enhances comprehension, critical thinking, and retention of knowledge. When students engage in writing to learn, they actively synthesize and articulate their understanding of a subject matter, transforming complex concepts into coherent and organized thoughts. Putting ideas into words deepens their understanding and helps identify gaps in their knowledge. Writing enables learners to analyze and evaluate information critically. Writing also aids memory retention, as it reinforces neural connections and strengthens the learning process. Whether through note-taking, essays, or reflections, writing facilitates a more profound connection with the content.

Tools & strategies for incorporating writing across all content areas in grades 3-12 will be shared, including ideas for how to handle writing done with ChatGPT or other AI programs.
