      In math (7th grade) I often ask students to write a summarizer at the end of the lesson explaining a key idea that I want to be sure they understood correctly. I also give 100% quizzes where students have the answers to all of the questions but they have to explain why the answer is correct. (Not my idea). It works well and they usually write a lot to justify the given answers.

        In math (k) my students have math journals that they use to write about and illustrate their thinking. Sometimes we are all working on a problem together, sometimes the students choose this at their math station.

          As a biology teacher, my unit on genetics included a pro/con essay on a "hot" topic in the field (for example, cloning, genetically modified food, gene therapy, etc.) in which students would have to explain both the science and the implications of it for society.
