This year I would like to make more of an effort to have my students write in my classes. I know it is so important and yet I do not do a very good job of being consistent. Here are some resources I found that support writing in math or provide ideas.

Integrating Writing into the Mathematics Classroom

Using Writing in Mathematics to Deepen Student Learning

I am thinking of using a separate journal booklet instead of having students write in their Interactive Notebook. Haven't decided. I quickly put together this booklet in case this is something I would like to do. Print as a stapled booklet. Students can color the front cover. Store them in your classroom or in the back of their Interactive Notebook using a pocket.

You've provided some terrific resources. I like the idea of using a separate journal booklet. It may become a keepsake for many students.
