Mini-Journal Inquiry Laboratory: A Case Study in a General Chemistry Kinetics Experiment
Zhao, Ningfeng; Wardeska, Jeffrey G.
Journal of Chemical Education, v88 n4 p452-456 Apr 2011
The mini-journal curriculum for undergraduate science laboratories mirrors the format of scientific literature and helps students improve their learning through direct scientific practices. The lab embodies the essential features of scientific inquiry and replaces the traditional "cookbook" lab to engage students in active learning. A case study of a mini-journal lab in college general chemistry, including its design, instruction, and reflections, is described. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
