Through writing, students are able to clarify their own understanding and answer resounding questions not only about specific experiences but also, ultimately, about a part of their life or the larger world.

Rapparlie has given us a very creative and practical bridge to connect writing and experiential education. The simple theoretical foundation and helpful examples and insights will inspire educators to integrate experiential writing techniques into any educational environment. The easy-to-use, engaging activities and lessons clearly illustrate how writing can be used to allow students to reflect on lessons learned and deepen learning around any material.

From the Inside Flap:

This book has exceptional potential for classroom teachers! The framework and theory provided are written clearly. The examples are helpful. I love the lesson plans! There are multiple uses for classroom teachers and content area teachers in science and social studies. I would encourage all of my schools to study, implement, and reflect on the lessons and activities outlined in this book! —Jennifer Seydel, Ph.D., School Designer, Midwest Region, Expeditionary Learning Schools, Madison, WI Rapparlie's approach highlights the experiential nature of learning to write and gives teachers ideas they can use in their own classrooms for engaging students with the writing process. The experiential paradigm that informs all of her activities becomes a powerful model for designing original classroom activities that fit your topic. In this way Rapparlie not only gives you some nice lures to help hook your students on the writing process, she also teaches you to fish so you can design a curriculum specifically angled to the stream of knowledge that flows through your class. —Michael Goeller, Associate Director, Rutgers University-New Brunswick Writing Program
