High School Students' Attitudes and Beliefs on Using the Science Writing Heuristic in an Advanced Placement Chemistry Class
Putti, Alice
Journal of Chemical Education, v88 n4 p516-521 Apr 2011
This paper discusses student attitudes and beliefs on using the Science Writing Heuristic (SWH) in an advanced placement (AP) chemistry classroom. During the 2007 school year, the SWH was used in a class of 24 AP chemistry students. Using a Likert-type survey, student attitudes and beliefs on the process were determined. Methods for the study are described as well as survey questions and results. An example of the grading rubric, a teacher generated sample report, a lab handout, and a description of the prelab and postlab discussion are included in the online supporting information. (Contains 5 tables.)
