Two-Year Community: The Use of Journaling to Assess Student Learning and Acceptance of Evolutionary Science
Scharmann, Lawrence C.; Butler, Wilbert, Jr.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v45 n1 Sep 2015
Journal writing was introduced as a means to assess student learning and acceptance of evolutionary science in a nonmajors' biology course taught at a community college. Fourteen weeks of instruction were performed, each initiated by student-centered, in-class activities and culminated by a discussion, to elucidate tentative conclusions based on evidence from in-class activities.
