AbstractThis short essay discusses how regularly asking students to write down their thoughts and reactions to class readings can help re-enforce what they are learning about the responsible conduct of research, and allows them the chance to think about topics covered in greater depth, relate them to their own lives, and connect the classroom to the world outside.
