Waldo, Jennifer Turner; Pereira, Melanie; Rahman, Mohammad; Siconolfi, Jessica – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
A novel experiment has been developed with a goal of enhancing engagement and deepening understanding of fundamental molecular biology concepts. In this laboratory activity, students investigate the composition of pet foods through quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) analysis. By conducting this experiment, students address a scientific…

Tsybulsky, Dina – Science & Education, 2018
The current study compared the effectiveness of two methods in biology teaching that are based on the science-as-inquiry approach: visits to authentic university laboratories (AULs) and analyzing adapted primary literature (APL). The methods' effectiveness was measured in terms of high-school students' increased understanding following a 6-week…

Stringer, Elizabeth I.; Hendrix, Jasmine D.; Swortzel, Kirk A.; Williams, J. Byron; Schilling, M. Wes – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
Historically, high school chemistry has been the predominate venue for the introduction of food science curriculum to students. With the current decline in chemistry as a required course for graduation, the possibility of exposure to food science in high school could equally decline. The purpose of this research was to determine if high school…

Leo, Jonathan; Puzio, Kelly – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2016
This paper reports on a quasi-experimental study examining the effectiveness of flipped instruction in a 9th grade biology classroom. This study included four sections of freshmen-level biology taught by the first author at a private secondary school in the Pacific Northwest. Using a block randomized design, two sections were flipped and two…

Allen, Denise A. – American Biology Teacher, 2014
Little empirical evidence suggested that independent reading abilities of students enrolled in biology predicted their performance on the Biology I Graduation End-of-Course Assessment (ECA). An archival study was conducted at one Indiana urban public high school in Indianapolis, Indiana, by examining existing educational assessment data to test…

Loehr, John F.; Almarode, John T.; Tai, Robert H.; Sadler, Philip M. – Journal of Biological Education, 2012
In a climate where increasing numbers of students are encouraged to pursue post-secondary education, the level of preparedness students have for college-level coursework is not far from the minds of all educators, especially high school teachers. Specifically within the biological sciences, introductory biology classes often serve as the…

Koul, Ravinder; Roy, Laura; Lerdpornkulrat, Thanita – Learning Environments Research, 2012
Researchers have reported persuasive evidence that students' perceptions of their classroom learning environment account for significant variance in cognitive and affective outcomes (e.g. intrinsic motivation, self-concept, liking for particular subjects and students' intention to drop out). The study reported in this paper investigated the…

Regier, Kimberly Fayette – Community College Journal of Research and Practice, 2016
General biology courses (for majors) are often transferred from one institution to another. These courses must prepare students for upper division courses in biology. In Colorado, a Biology Transfer Articulation Agreement that includes general biology has been created across the state. An evaluation was conducted of course grades in two upper…

Malone, Kathy L.; Schunn, Christian D.; Schuchardt, Anita M. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
The National Research Council framework for science education and the Next Generation Science Standards have developed a need for additional research and development of curricula that is both technologically model-based and includes engineering practices. This is especially the case for biology education. This paper describes a quasi-experimental…

Ylizarde, Natalie Harr; Kiorpes, Lolita Cariaso – Science Teacher, 2018
Climate change is complex, requiring critical thinking on both local and global scales. Its effects vary dramatically around the world and require new strategies to help students grasp its complexity, scale, and interrelatedness. This article describes a project to help biology students think critically about climate change from a global…
