LC Module: Writing Templates and Term Papers

“When answering study questions, students engaged in fragmented, low-level recognition and recall. When taking notes, they focused on larger concepts but still failed to make their own sense of the content. Only essay writing caused them to think critically—synthesizing, hypothesizing, and evaluating ideas.” (Goodwin, Bryan 04, 2014)
“Writing is not merely the simple task of using paper and pen or pencil to connect letters to form words. Instead, it is using words to form larger thoughts that demonstrate understanding.” (Waring, Jennifer 2007)
“Writing is, in fact, one of the best tools for learning any material because it activates thinking” (Daniels et al., 1998, p. 63). (Daniels, H., Hyde, A., & Zemelman, S. 1998)
