Connecting Theory to Practice: Evaluating a Brain-Based Writing Curriculum
Griffee, Dale T.
Learning Assistance Review, v12 n1 p17-27 Spr 2007
This 10 week longitudinal evaluation study evaluated a brain-based learning curriculum proposed by Smilkstein (2003) by comparing student performance in a traditional basic writing curriculum with NHLP-oriented basic writing curriculum. The study included two classes each of experimental and traditional methods. Results of the data, gathered by means of questionnaires and in-class writing, indicate the experimental classes expressed more positive comments than the traditional classes, and, on an enjoyment scale, tended to score higher mean Likert scores; but low N-size inhibited statistical testing and weakens the claim. However, scores for the final writing were statistically significantly higher for experimental students. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
