Lerach, David G.; Yestness, Nissa R. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
An in-class case study is presented for use in a liberal arts core extreme weather course, designed to foster science literacy, appreciation, and critical thinking skills in nonscience majors. Students are ultimately shown the critical importance of the physical sciences in their daily lives and encouraged to consider STEM (science, technology,…

McDonald, Kelly K.; Martin, Allison R.; Watters, Cody P.; Landerholm, Thomas E. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Many studies illustrate the positive influences of undergraduate research experiences on student learning, attitudes, and retention in the sciences. At our institution, over 90% of the biology majors surveyed reported a desire to participate in undergraduate research, but only 3% per year have the opportunity to work in a traditional…

Casper, Anne Marie A.; Woodbury, Jacob M.; Davis, William B.; Offerdahl, Erika G. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Recent studies have shown that sorting tasks are a useful tool both for measuring and aiding student learning as well as facilitating the transfer of knowledge to novel contexts. These tasks require students to categorize scenarios or information in new ways that facilitate connection making and deeper understanding. As such, sorting tasks…

Dark, Marta L.; Hylton, Derrick J. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
This article describes a general education course offering, Physics and the Arts. During the development of this course, physics and arts faculty collaborated closely. We cover the usual physics phenomena for such a course--light, color, and sound--in addition to gravity, equilibrium, and spacetime. Goals of the course are to increase students'…

Chen, Ying-Chih; Mineweaser, Lindsey; Accetta, Danielle; Noonan, Dalton – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
The "Next Generation Science Standards" explicitly endorse argumentation as essential practices for K-12 science classrooms because it can concurrently engage the learners in the coordination of conceptual, epistemic, and social goals. It is important to develop students' capacities to interpret information and data to reasonable…

Ruder, Suzanne M.; Stanford, Courtney; Gandhi, Anand – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
Active learning classrooms provide an ideal opportunity to develop key workplace skills such as teamwork, information processing, critical thinking, and problem solving. Although many active learning pedagogies implicitly support student development of these skills, the role of the instructor in explicitly prompting and assessing these skills in…

Appasamy, Pierette – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
The teaching of histology has changed dramatically with virtual microscopy. Fewer students of histology spend significant time viewing slides on a microscope and instead study images available in digital slide sets, generally accessible via the internet. However, students must still be able to correctly identify the defining characteristics of…

Page, Robert B.; Espinosa, James; Mares, Chris A.; Del Pilar, Joselyn; Shelton, G. Robert – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
Education is frequently cited as the path to an informed citizenry with an optimistic economic outlook. Consequently, it is not surprising that there is an initiative to extend postsecondary educational opportunities to underserved and at-risk demographics. A challenge facing educators that serve at-risk populations is the tension between…

Roberts, Jacqueline; Propsom, Pamela; Tobin, William – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
A small undergraduate liberal arts college explored a model, grounded in the literature, to develop a shared vision for its science and math general education curriculum that focuses on scientific literacy skills. This process has allowed us to produce shared general education learning goals across our eight science and math departments, conduct…
