Teaching Students to Read the Primary Literature Using POGIL Activities
Murray, Tracey Arnold
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, v42 n2 p165-173 Mar-Apr 2014
The ability to read, interpret, and evaluate articles in the primary literature are important skills that science majors will use in graduate school and professional life. Because of this, it is important that students are not only exposed to the primary literature in undergraduate education, but also taught how to read and interpret these articles. To achieve this objective, POGIL activities were designed to use the primary literature in a majors biochemistry sequence. Data show that students were able to learn content from the literature without separate activities or lecture. Students also reported an increase in comfort and confidence in approaching the literature as a result of the activities.
