Offerdahl, Erika; Baldwin, Thomas; Elfring, Lisa; Vierling, Elizabeth; Ziegler, Miriam
Journal of College Science Teaching, v37 n4 p43-47 Mar-Apr 2008
As an alternative to reading quizzes, a team of biochemistry instructors implemented student reading questions (Henderson and Rosenthal 2006) as a new instructional strategy within their large-enrollment biochemistry courses. Unexpected positive outcomes of this instructional method were realized, as well as limitations of the method within this setting. Outcomes and limitations of the reading-question strategy as well as suggestions for their more efficient implementation are discussed. (Contains 2 figures.)
