After reviewing pages 66-67 and 83-94 in Chapter 3 I had a better understanding of why it is helpful for students to write a learning log. One reason being that it is helpful for them to write down their thoughts and being able to go back to reflect on them. Another being that it helps them remember what they learned. Furthermore, by writing things down, they will be able to remember and have a better understanding of key components. Students will also be able to focus on the "key components of a topic before rushing on to the next question" which reduces any frustration within their learning (87). When thinking of what topics to give students for their reading logs, allowing them to use relevant and interesting topics in order to "transform dry facts into fascinating details that stick long after the lesson has ended" (94).
