Student Writing in Philosophy: A Sketch of Five Techniques.
Fishman, Stephen M.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n69 p53-66 Spr 1997
Five techniques used for college writing assignments to heighten student thinking and involvement in class discussion are described: study questions; class notes; triple-entry notetaking; freewriting; and class response logs. These assignments balance personal/constructive writing and academic/critical writing to develop active learning. Examples from a philosophy course are offered. (Author/MSE)
