Contemplation Writing: An Alternative to Journal Writing and Mindfulness Programs Part 5: Themes from Student Contemplations The themes, plots, experiences, and stories of my students cover a wide range of everyday, real events, and also, surreal happenings that impact adolescent life.  The beauty of “Contemplation” or “Music” Writing is that it gives kids the freedom of expression that leads to self-discovery, self-motivation, and ultimately, self-education.  Their inner worlds are activated by the music and trigger the desire to write about whatever they experienced inside themselves
