Weiss, David J.; McGuire, Patrick; Clouse, Wendi; Sandoval, Raphael – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
Studies on the effectiveness of clickers in undergraduate chemistry courses are mixed, and there is disagreement on how to effectively leverage clickers to improve student learning performance. To fill a gap in the research, we analyzed three different teaching strategies (two involving clickers) in a General Chemistry I course over a 13-year time…

Mahaffey, Angela L. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
This article provides two additional mnemonics that can serve to help undergraduate students recall how to apply the rules of writing net ionic equations. These mnemonics were incorporated into dozens of lecture and laboratory class content, which includes hundreds of undergraduate (health professions and physical science major) students. As a…

Beckerson, William C.; Anderson, Jennifer O.; Perpich, John D.; Yoder-Himes, Debbie – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
With calls to reassess higher education teaching methods, active learning practices have quickly become a popular alternative to traditional lectures, especially in STEM courses that traditionally rely heavily on large-lecture formats. In this regard, active learning environments stand to better prepare students for life after college; however,…

Smith-Peavler, Emily; Gardner, Grant E.; Otter, Ryan – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Visual representations of physical and natural phenomena are important components of the teaching and learning of biology. In current undergraduate biology classrooms, visual representations are most often provided to students on PowerPoint slides. This study focuses on the use of, and perceptions about, PowerPoint in undergraduate introductory…

Brigati, Jennifer; England, Benjamin J.; Schussler, Elisabeth – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
In response to STEM education reform efforts, many instructors have incorporated active learning into their courses. However, the relationship between instructor justification to students about the use of active learning and student perception of why instructors use active learning is largely unknown. To investigate instructor active learning…

Idsardi, Robert; Hahn, Daniel A.; Bokor, Julie R.; Luft, Julie A. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Science faculty are being asked to create active learning experiences that engage students in core concepts and science practices. This article describes an approach to developing active learning lessons from authentic science research projects using the 5E lesson format. Included is a description of the 5Es and a template for creating a 5E…

Koenig, Kathleen; Wood, Krista E.; Bortner, Larry J.; Bao, Lei – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
This article showcases how a physics lab course was successfully redesigned to promote important reasoning abilities not explicitly addressed in the typical college setting. Student development of such abilities is essential for sound decision making, particularly when living in an information age. Essential features of our guiding curricular…

Kaya, Erdogan; Newley, Anna; Yesilyurt, Esgi; Deniz, Hasan – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
The Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) underscore the importance of including engineering design process (EDP) within the science curriculum. The Framework and the NGSS raised engineering design to the level of scientific inquiry in an attempt to prepare a STEM-literate workforce for the 21st…

Lee, Tammy D.; Glass, Bonnie – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
National science education documents emphasize new learning outcomes of elementary students; therefore, the preparation of elementary teachers should be revised to meet these challenges. This article describes how science educators at a large southeastern university developed specialized science training for elementary preservice teachers (EPSTs)…

Petto, Andrew J. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
In very large lecture classes, student engagement is always a challenge, and many instructors use electronic student response systems (SRS) to promote student engagement and active learning. The conventional wisdom in using student response systems is that the technology matters less than the pedagogy; it is the added value of the instructor that…

Prud'homme-Généreux, Annie; Gibson, J. Phil; Csikari, Melissa – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
"Cases are stories with a message. They are not simply narratives for entertainment. They are stories to educate" (Herreid, 1997, p. 92). By this definition, a case study is two things: a story and a strategy to drive learning. Although the story typically comes from a narrative purposefully written for the classroom, such as the case…

Price, Rebecca M.; Perez, Kathryn E. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
Improving students' understanding of how science works requires explicit instruction. Here, we test the efficacy of a module based on two previously published activities (the "Cube Puzzle" and the case study "Asteroids and Dinosaurs") that teach how science works to college science majors. Students also use the How Science…

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…
