Learning as They Write: An Assignment to Explain Physics Concepts
McKinney, Julie; Hademenos, George
Physics Teacher, v47 n5 p290-294 May 2009
Cross-curricular secondary instructional strategies exist in many different forms and can be applied to any two or more curricular disciplines. Most importantly, these strategies have been proven to be effective in improving learning and comprehension of important concepts across all curricular fields involved in the activity. There is no instructional strategy as applicable and as important to secondary students in all classes, particularly English Language Learners (ELLs), as the implementation of writing into a curricular discipline.
