Research and Teaching: A Case Study on Reflective Writing
Huang, Xiang; Kalman, Calvin S.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v42 n1 p92-99 Sep 2012
Reflective writing is a student-centered approach widely used in science and engineering courses that helps students develop a holistic scientific mindset. We present a multiple case study in two science courses in which students engaged in reflective writing. The goal of this study was to explore relationships between students' performance found in their writing products and students' epistemology and way of learning. We found that students with higher scores on an epistemology survey tended to use reflective writing in a more effective way to enhance their learning of textual material. (Contains 1 table.)
