Write Now! Using Reflective Writing beyond the Humanities and Social Sciences
Cannady, Rachel E.; Gallo, Kasia Z.
Journal of Further and Higher Education, v40 n2 p188-206 2016
Writing is an important teaching and learning tool that fosters active and critical thinking. There are multiple pressures for disciplines outside the humanities and social sciences to integrate writing in their courses. The shift from teaching solely discipline-specific skills to including writing in a meaningful way can be a daunting process. An instructor and education reference librarian at a public, four-year research university infused an urban planning course with reflective writing exercises. The collaboration proved effective in increasing students' perceived writing abilities and active thinking via increased immediacy, frequency of writing and active learning.
