The Biology Classroom: A Natural Place for Narrative.
Stotz, Nancy G.
Noting that traditional approaches to biology education do not take full advantage of the narrative nature of biology when introducing students to its subject matter, this paper argues that students in biology courses could benefit from being asked to write narratives and that this activity could fit into either a fairly traditional curriculum or a more innovative, process-oriented approach. The paper suggests encouraging students to first write a creative narrative (for example, on photosynthesis) and discusses how creative narratives could be used in either a content-driven biology classroom or a classroom dominated by the learning-cycle approach. Contains 11 references. (NKA)
