SOURCE MATERIALS FOR GENERAL AND HUMAN BIOLOGY. FINAL REPORT.
HALL, THOMAS S.
DEVELOPED AND SUBJECTIVELY EVALUATED ARE INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS FOR USE IN AN INTRODUCTORY COLLEGE LEVEL GENERAL EDUCATION BIOLOGY COURSE, WHICH EMPHASIZES THE DYNAMIC AND INVESTIGATIVE ASPECTS OF SCIENCE. THE MATERIALS, WHICH USE A CASE HISTORY APPROACH, WERE DEVELOPED BY EDITING EXCERPTS FROM CLASSICAL SCIENTIFIC PAPERS WITH ADEQUATE EDITORIAL ADDENDA TO SUPPLY BACKGROUND AND CONTINUITY. THE MATERIALS WERE USED IN THREE YEARS BY A TOTAL OF 300 SOPHOMORE STUDENTS ATTENDING WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY. THE COURSE PROCEDURE WAS FOR THE STUDENTS TO INDIVIDUALLY CRITIQUE THE MATERIAL AND TO DISCUSS EACH PAPER EXHAUSTIVELY IN GROUPS OF 15-20 STUDENTS WHILE ALSO PARTICIPATING IN "PROCESS-ORIENTED" LECTURES AND PROBLEM-BASED LABORATORIES. SUBJECTIVELY, BASED ON AN EXTENSIVE INDIVIDUAL CONVERSATION SURVEY, IT IS CONCLUDED THAT THE PAPERS TEND TO ENGAGE THE INTEREST AS WELL AS THE CRITICAL AND INTELLECTUAL FACULTIES OF STUDENTS. THE COMPLETE SET OF MATERIALS CONSISTING OF 12 PAPERS IS INCLUDED. (DS)
