Lee, Eunbae; Maerz, John C.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v44 n4 Mar 2015
Writing stories is advocated as an excellent means of learning the process of science; however, little is understood about students' experiences of engaging in story writing in postsecondary science courses. The study described in this article was designed to improve the practice of using stories in science by examining students' lived experience through interviews, surveys, and observations.
