Writing and the Brain
“Greater activation throughout the brain occurs when information is acquired through the diversity of experiences provided be peer collaboration.
When groups are planned so that each member’s strengths have a authentic importance to the ultimate success of the group’s activity, this creates a situation where individual learning styles, skills, and talents are valued, and students shine in their fortes and learn from each other in the areas where they are not as expert. They call on each other’s guidance to solve pertinent and compelling problems and develop their interpersonal skills by communicating their ideas to partners.”
