The I-Search: Writing to Learn
Crouse-Powers, Amy
NADE Digest, v2 n1 p9-14 Spr 2006
For a college study strategies course, we utilized Macrorie's (1988) I-Search process to facilitate students' individual exploration of the typical "study skills" issues that such a course would cover. The I-Search promotes active reflection, evaluation, and synthesis, and is an excellent tool both for aiding students in learning new information and for learning about the essence of scholarship. The result was a multi-layered learning opportunity to use the processes of scholarly research to bring new information to bear on a question or problem the students had in their own lives as learners.
