Engaging General Biology Students with Learning Contracts
Litchfield, Brenda; Mata, Juan; Gray, Laura
Journal of College Science Teaching, v37 n2 p34-39 Nov 2007
Students in a general biology class used a learning contract where they selected chapter-relevant activities they could complete through several formats: oral, written, or artistic. The majority of students felt they learned a lot with this method, the process was motivating, and that it should be used in future semesters. (Contains 6 figures.)
