What are we doing when we put our thoughts into words and then think about what we've done? Why is what we initially write often different from what we imagined before we started writing? Why do some people like to make outlines prior to writing anything, and other people need to write a lot to figure out what they think? The purpose of this course is explore the relationship between writing and thinking, with a specific focus on reflection. Students in this course will develop or refine strategies to support writing, thinking and reflection within the context of a liberal arts college.
