Biermann, Carol A.; Sarinsky, Gary B.
Community College Review, v21 n3 p53-61 Win 1993
Compares the success of two approaches to biology courses for underprepared community college students, one involving a hands-on approach emphasizing practice in basic scientific skills and the other involving a remediation-based approach focusing on basic vocabulary, reading, library, and math skills. Suggests that the hands-on approach provided better preparation for subsequent biology courses. (ECC)
