Rating
0.0 stars

When working on longer or more important writing projects, writers often face many of the same issues commonly discussed in connection with writer’s block: information, order, insight, and need. These, combined with the pressures we feel about now having to write texts that are not only longer but also higher stakes projects, often make projects seem overly intimidating. From the very beginning of your work on a thesis, article, dissertation, or book project, you must take steps to minimize the issues that would slow you down or prevent you from finishing.

Rating

Reflective writing fosters students’ awareness of their habits of thinking and helps them to develop and solidify productive ways of approaching problems. Students experiencing labs might be able to describe what they are seeing, but they need guidance from more experienced scientific professionals to reflect on lab experiences.

During our second workshop, you learned about reflective writing, a tool for helping students make sense of their learning experience through description, connection, prediction/application, critique/analysis, and condensing for external audiences.

Difficult Concepts and Levels of Understanding PDF
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

A high-impact writing assignment will target difficult concepts, sometimes called “sticky” concepts or, in technical terms, threshold concepts. Think about an especially important element of your course that is typically difficult for students to learn—but that they generally must learn in order to succeed in the course and move forward in the discipline. For example, economists might talk about opportunity cost; biologists might talk about drivers of evolution; literary critics might talk about close reading; and historians might talk about constructed historical narratives.

Rating
0.0 stars

Informed by scholarship in writing studies and teaching and learning, this handout describes features faculty may want to consider when developing effective writing assignments. The principles here may be used for courses at all levels and applied to high-stakes, semester-long projects as well as low-stakes, writing-to-learn activities. Regardless of the writing task, all writing assignments should be framed around an open question or interesting problem with multiple possible answers, solutions, or interpretations — not a single predetermined answer (see Bean 2011).

What is expressive writing? Expressive writing involves writing down current thoughts, feelings, physical sensations, insights, gratitudes, and more. It is writing without regard for typical writing conventions, such as sentence flow or organization. This type of writing involves being in touch with the present moment, focusing on yourself.

Why use expressive writing? Research has shown that expressive writing helps to manage anxieties, reduce stress, and cope with depression or life events. This technique is helpful as it allows you to externalize your thoughts and stressors, not carrying them around. This allows individuals to separate themselves from their problems. Often times, this helps to view the environment different or solve problems.
