Biology | Writing Workshop in Biology
L322 | 7966 | Malacinski, G
Learning how to develop strategies for writing scientific reports
will be the main goal of L322. Emphasis will be placed on mastering
appropriate logics and thought processes for framing and analyzing
specific projects and topics in modern molecular biology. Students
will work on a variety of writing assignments, including short
scientific "abstracts", essays, and full-length reports.
Cooperative (small-group) learning approaches will be employed, as
will peer editing.
Mr. Brian Winterman (science librarian and “information fluency”
specialist) will participate in most aspects of the course. He will
provide students with “one on one” assistance in collecting and
interpreting information. Thus, students will develop information
collecting skills, as well as analytical and writing skills.
