Review of Chemistry storyline for 151/152

Submitted by Levi Torrison on

By journaling my class as the students see it I am looking at the fluidity of the story from the learners perspective.  In order for students to see the world as a scientist sees it they must understand the continuity of science.  It is my goal to give a clear and concise story throughout the semester that encourages the student as well as holds them accountable for previous knowledge.

Levi, journaling has become popular among the science faculty.  HOw do you measure if it was effective at improving student learning?

Journaling can take on so many forms . . . do you have a template that students use when they journal? How do you assess the journals, and do they inform your instruction.

This was actually my own journal.  I have had students journal the class for years and I decided to do it myself from the students perspective.  Right away I found holes in my storyline, so this semester I changed some of the order and added some background information.

Did you complete the journal and find parts of the storyline that needs adjusting?
