Using Mini-Reports to Teach Scientific Writing to Biology Students
Simmons, Alexandria D.; Larios-Sanz, Maia; Amin, Shivas; Rosell, Rosemarie C.
American Biology Teacher, v76 n8 p551-555 Oct 2014
Anyone who has taught an introductory biology lab has sat at their desk in front of a towering stack of lengthy lab reports and wondered if there was a better way to teach scientific writing. We propose the use of a one-page format that we have called a "mini-report," which we believe better allows students to understand the structure and characteristics of proper scientific writing and reduces the grading-time investment for instructors.
