Abstract: A letter-writing exercise renders concepts from statistics and research methods more meaningful by allowing students to put complex ideas into their own words. Students select topics and write about them in letters to peers in another section of the same course. Most students are able to correctly explain abstract course material to peers in the form of a letter.
