To further enhance cognitive thought and understanding of the content, many Learning Connect tools are conducive to Journaling and Reflective Writings by using writing prompts.  Writing prompts promote and enhance self-reflection, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.  Ideas and concepts are further explored and different perspectives are generated. Creativity, wonder and innovation are encouraged and inspired.

Reflection and journaling also enhance writing and organizational skills.  Language, literacy and vocabulary practice plays a key role in increasing memory, connection, comprehension and working memory capacity.  It should be noted that research shows that working memory is a better predictor of academic success than IQ.  A Reflect and Connect Journal Cover is available for download to be inserted in the front plastic sleeve of a three ring binder for journaling use per student.
