Writing to Learn

This 4-page monograph discusses the value of embedding informal "writing-to-learn" (as opposed to "learning-to-write") activities into all curriculum areas to help students synthesize and reflect on their own thinking as well as to make that thinking visible to others. The suggested strategies, advice, and practical techniques are applicable to all content areas. The article ends with a list of references and related readings. This is part of the Capacity Building Series produced by the Ontario Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat.

    • Thank you Ontario Ministry of Education for contributing here difference between writing to learn vs learning to write. I will sure share this PDF with the math learning students who are taking best assignment help from Secure Assignment Help and also informing that Writing-to-learn sections are comfortable and generally free-flowing as students discover their personal lines of philosophy. As well as they can write a sentence, list some words, or develop an article. Instead of struggling with the conventions and codes of more formal writing.
