Retaining Students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Majors
Journal of College Science Teaching , May 13 $0.99
Average User Rating:
This article presents results relating undergraduate student retention in STEM majors to the use of Peer Instruction (PI) in an introductory physics course at a highly selective research institution. The authors compare the percentages of students who switch out of a STEM major after taking a physics course taught using traditional lectures only or one taught using PI, finding that nearly twice the percentage of students switch after the lecture-based...  [view full summary]

Fostering Scientific Thinking by Prospective Teachers in a Course That Integrates Physics and Literacy Learning
Journal of College Science Teaching , May 13 $0.99
The authors designed a physics course for prospective elementary and middle school teachers to foster aspects of scientific thinking recommended in reform documents. Because the elementary school curriculum focuses heavily on literacy, they also explicitly integrated physics and literacy learning in this course. In this article the authors discuss prospective teachers' perceptions of ways they have developed their abilities to think scientifically...  [view full summary]

Synthesis for the Interdisciplinary Environmental Sciences: Integrating Systems Approaches and Service Learning
Journal of College Science Teaching , May 13 $0.99
A tight coupling of systems theory and service learning provides learners with the knowledge and skills required to tackle contemporary social-environmental challenges. The tangible benefits of a systems theory–service learning curriculum occur in two principal learning areas: increased knowledge breadth and depth. The authors present the tangible benefits of this deepening and broadening process along three axes: appreciation, research methods, and...  [view full summary]
