Writing that encourages students to articulate their understanding of math concepts or explain math ideas helps deepen students' mathematical understanding. Tasks, such as writing about how they solved a problem or writing about what it means to prove something, help students get a concrete handle on the logic of their ideas, supporting their Reasoning skills.
Watch how this school uses low-stakes writing in all subjects as a way to help students find their voice and foster critical thinking. Students are encouraged to write down their ideas, where they are at in their learning, and their questions in an "interactive notebook" that becomes their own textbook.
