Original Undergraduate Research in Classroom Contexts: Student Perceptions of a Scaffolded Approach
Manarin, Karen; McGrath, April; Carey, Miriam
Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, v9 p11-18 2016
This article describes a model for supporting undergraduate research that can be adapted for very different classroom contexts; we implemented this model in a first-year general education composition class, a second-year Psychology class and a fourth-year English literature seminar. We examine student work created for each class as well as reflections and interviews to explore student attitudes towards and perceptions of research. While the scaffolded approach had an impact on students' understanding of the research process, the effects did not vary significantly by level and context as we had expected.
