Biology and Summarizing

Annotated Research

Question: Does summarizing biology content help students learn ad remember the content?

Answer: “Expressive summary writing seems to help students learn biology better initially and to sustain this learning advantage over  students who do not summarize expressively.” JE Sharp. 1987. P. 221.

Comment: I’m not sure I understand the meaning of “expressive summary.” But I think summarizing content will help anyone learn content better. RayS.
