Integrating Reading and Study Skills into College Biology.
Tomlinson, Barbara; Tomlinson, Michael
In order to help college students in their transition to college level work in biology and to increase their achievements in that field, a special reading and study skills adjunct course was organized. The course focused on the methods and materials of the introductory course for biology majors and attempted to build the students' skill foundations for later transfer to independent science reading. Students attended the course on a voluntary, no-credit basis three times a week for eight weeks. A preliminary study of the effectiveness of the course conducted during the 1974-75 academic year indicated significant achievements by the adjunct class. A subsequent study in the fall quarter of 1975 indicated that courses which integrate the teaching of reading and study strategies with content material may be effective in increasing freshman achievement.
