Deri, Melissa A.; Mills, Pamela; McGregor, Donna – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
A flipped classroom is one where students are first introduced to content outside of the classroom. This frees up class time for more active learning strategies and has been shown to enhance student learning in high school and college classrooms. However, many studies in General Chemistry, a college gateway science course, were conducted in small…

Metzger, Kelsey J.; Smith, Brittany A.; Brown, Ethan; Soneral, Paula A. G. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
This study describes the development and implementation of an iterative diagnostic and intervention routine designed to elicit and quantitatively describe aspects of student metacognition, affect, and study habits in a first-year undergraduate biology course. The Student Metacognition, Affect, and Study Habits (SMASH) inventory is a…

Gow, Joan-Beth; Carpino, Lisa A. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
Anorexia nervosa is a complex behavioral disorder with the highest risk of death of any psychological disorder. Between 15% and 20% of those suffering from anorexia die from complications that are attributed either directly or indirectly to self-starvation. Heritability for anorexia is around 0.5, meaning about 50% of the risk for anorexia is…

Bruck, Laura B.; Bruck, Aaron D. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
Recruitment and retention in the sciences is both difficult and crucial, especially in the community college setting. In this study, the resources used by General Chemistry I students at two different public, predominantly two-year colleges in two states were studied via surveys for a semester. Data were analyzed with respect to student attitudes…

Nagel, Megan; Lindsey, Beth – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
With only minimal changes to the course structure, classroom clickers were introduced in introductory chemistry to allow students to regularly compare their perceived abilities with their actual abilities, a measurement also known as calibration. Students used the clickers to provide knowledge judgments, an indication of their confidence in…

Pergams, Oliver R. W.; Jake-Matthews, Charmaine E.; Mohanty, Liza M. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
Reading aloud (RA) is a learning strategy commonly used to help younger students develop language comprehension skills and in adult literacy and language courses to help students master the pronunciation of words, grammar, and intonation. However, we know of no studies to date that investigate the possible benefits of RA at the college or…

Finelli, Cynthia J.; Nguyen, Kevin; DeMonbrun, Matthew; Borrego, Maura; Prince, Michael; Husman, Jennifer; Henderson, Charles; Shekhar, Prateek; Waters, Cynthia K. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
In spite of considerable evidence of the effectiveness of active learning and other contemporary teaching methods, barriers to adoption of those methods, such as possible student resistance, continue to exist. This study addresses student resistance by analyzing data from 1,051 students who completed our Student Response to Instructional Practices…

Beck, Christopher W. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
Multiple national reports have pushed for the integration of quantitative concepts into the context of disciplinary science courses. The aim of this study was to evaluate the quantitative and statistical literacy of biology students and explore learning gains when those skills were taught implicitly in the context of biology. I examined gains in…

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…

Moldwin, Mark B. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
Many large-lecture introductory science courses for nonscience majors do not have a lab component and hence do not provide much opportunity for students to engage in the practice of science. I have developed a new instructional activity called Dorm Room Labs that enables students to conduct hands-on activities as homework (or dorm room work) to…

Grossman, Gary D.; Simon, Troy N. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
We evaluated student perceptions of an inquiry-based, karaoke video exercise in six university classes ranging from first year to graduate level. Students created a 3-4 minute karaoke video on a topic relevant to class. Student responses to the project based on questionnaires and triangulation interviews were strongly positive. Students did not…

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…

Field, Patrick R.; Logan, Kelsey L. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
The Game Changer is an interrupted case study that traces the football career of Anthony "Tony Tonka Truck" Williams and the types of brain trauma that he suffers from playing football, from junior league level through high school, college, and his draft into the pros. To be successful during this case, readers will have to be familiar…

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…
