It's all about CONNECTION!!
To Review Experiences
We want to write about what happens to us to remember what it was like and to share it with other people.
It helps us connect with others!
To Learn
There are times when we write things down because it helps us understand it or remember it better. It gives us a visual to add to something that is being talked about.
-Notes in class
-Journals and or diaries
To Show Understanding
