As students journal, they learn to express their thoughts more clearly and greatly develop their writing skills. Journal prompts encourage students to develop a thought process where they consider an initial question and then think about where their opinions come from. This type of self-analysis can serve students throughout their lives, especially as they move on to tougher topics.
