Writing and Critical Thinking: A Case Study

presented by Bryan Kopp (CATL) and Darci Thoune (English)
Friday, February 15, 1:30-2:15 p.m., 161 Wing Technology Center

Why do some students transform their knowledge when they write while others seem to be just "filling in the blanks"? This session will highlight findings from a study of how three UW-L students responded to a writing assignment on the concept of sustainability. One student reported that she "learned a lot but her ideas didn’t change". How is this possible? This session will share some answers and explore pedagogical implications for teachers across the disciplines.  Participants will watch video clips of actual student performances and discuss strategies for promoting critical thinking in writing assignments.
