Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Why Do We Need Bees? - Section 3: Explore


Many students think that writing and speaking are totally separate entities.  They love to talk, but when you ask them to write they suddenly have no ideas.  Having the students talk about ideas in advance helps them get those ideas out in the open, sort of speak.  It makes their ideas flow so much better once they realize that speaking is the same as writing, but instead of talking you are writing it down. Speaking is thinking out loud and writing is thinking in written form.  We can accomplish this by having the students talk to a partner before writing the ideas down on paper.
