Writing-to-Learn in First-Year Biological Sciences
Paszkowski, Cynthia; Haag, Margaret
Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, v1 p132-137 2008
In 2006-2007, we established a writing exercise in two large first-year biology courses. Overall, our exercise, which consisted of multiple drafts of a 500-word essay, offered students a good introduction to how editorial feedback can improve content and style in scientific writing. We discuss our goals, procedures, outcome, and students' responses to our initiative.
