Abstract

Writing can be a wonderful tool to help illuminate what students are learning in our statistics courses. Examples and strategies to include writing in your teaching toolkit -- and to increase the writing skills of students -- include team assignments, weekly case reports, in-class questions, and others. The webinar will share effective approaches and assignments gleaned from twenty years of using writing in introductory and upper-level statistics courses.
