In a 4-week study, students in one of two high school geometry classes completed three types of writing assignments: summarizing teacher lectures, explaining the process of problem solving, and analyzing incorrect problems on homework or tests. The class that completed the writing assignments had significantly higher average scores on two chapter tests than did the control class. (SV)
