The purpose of this action research study was to determine the effects of reflective writing in a seventh grade Pre-Algebra math class of ten males. The study took place in an Independent School in Baltimore County. Ten males in seventh grade used reflective writing assignments as a learning tool in Pre-Algebra class in the spring of 2019 during a Ratio and Proportion unit. Reflective writing was used twice a week for four weeks with feedback given once a week on the students’ writing. A pre-and post-test and a pre-and post-survey quasi-experimental design is used in the study. Results showed the impact of the use of reflective writing to deepen math comprehension.
