STUDIES IN WRITING Volume: 7

This book is an outstanding account of the current state of using
writing in service of learning. It presents psychological and
educational foundations of the writing across the curriculum movement
and describes writing-to-learn practices implemented at different
levels of education, ranging from elementary school to higher
education. It also puts the question into the broader context of
schooling and society, including writing and modern technology.
Writing as a Learning Tool is useful for educators, curriculum
developers, psychologists, cognitive scientists, writing researchers,
and teachers at all levels and all disciplines. It provides concrete
applications and ideas about how to enhance student learning by means
of writing. It pictures writing being more than a mere skill. Writing
is an act for making meaning and advancing thinking. This book
provides inspiration and insight for everybody who wants to go beyond
their current understanding of writing.
