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)
