Reflection: Student Ownership Here We Go Loop de Loop Writing: Discovering Ideas the Peter Elbow Way - Section 1: Teacher to Teacher: Lesson Context and Time Frame


Admittedly, loop writing for research may sound antithetical to best practices, but it works. My students tell me so. It's especially effective for those who get "stuck" easily. Loop writing shows them that they can conquer their research papers and produce work they can feel good about if they have a little faith in themselves.
