Writing Leads to Deeper Learning

According to a recent study by the National Survey of Student Engagement, when students are engaged in a variety of writing assignments, they are more likely to synthesize, analyze, and perform a variety of other higher level thinking.  While the study focused on college undergraduates, I can’t help but think that this must be true for younger students, too.  I see the results of increased writing in my own classes.  My students are more engaged, more knowledgeable, and more passionate when they write.  

So keep writing!
