Flow Writing in the Liberal Arts Core and across the Disciplines: A Vehicle for Confronting and Transforming Academic Disengagement
Gute, Deanne; Gute, Gary
Journal of General Education, v57 n4 p191-222 2008
This study examined the subjective experience of academic disengagement. Flow theory, which describes an intense form of engagement, structured writing-to-learn activities undergraduates applied in major and liberal arts courses. Results suggest that writing to learn can transform academic anxiety and boredom by facilitating concentration, providing feedback, and enhancing enjoyment. (Contains 2 tables.)
