reflect Student Sample “In school we concentrate too often on finished writing, prematurely finished writing. The daybook allows the unfinished, sometimes un-begun, writing that is essential for writing that allows the writer to learn, to say what hasn’t been said before, and to share it with readers” (Murray, 1984, p. 45). Writing-to-learn

"Note-taking" "Note-Making" Calling upon Murray’s concepts, Paul Connolly (1989) explains how writing-to-learn takes shape in the classroom:
Writing-to-learn involves and emphasizes the powerful role language plays in the production, as well as the presentation of knowledge. Writing to learn is less about formal uses of writing...than it is about informal writing...that is forming meaning; about writing that is done regularly in and out of class to help students acquire a personal ownership of ideas. (pp. 2-3) Social-epistemic rhetoric
“Composing can be seen as the intersection of context, text, self, and society” (Zebroski, 1994, p. 5).
Knowledge is found in an ongoing “dialectical interaction” between the individual, “the discourse community (social group)” in which the individual finds herself, and the “material conditions of existence” (Berlin, 1982, p. 488). Reflections and Connections
1. Take a moment to ponder what you are thinking now? What has your thinking been doing since I/we started talking?
2. Share! Capture whatever materials/thinking you
created so far, and...
take a pic, screenshot, type it, share a link, etc.
then, tweet it, Tumblr it, FB it, etc.
don’t forget to use hashtags #a3 and #cwcon Digital Daybooks?
http://shallowthoughts.weebly.com/daily-insights1.html "What unites and distinguishes these digital writing environments [ex. digital daybooks, free web-hosting sites, etc.] from those in print [ex. paper daybooks] is their materiality—their existence through the hardware and software that shape their design...While digital writing spaces are coded in diverse ways, they all exist in and through digital technologies, and as such they enable, constrain, challenge, reproduce, or question established practices, social orders, and hierarchies rooted in print materialities while also offering alternative practices and social orders to those established around print."
