An Integrated Approach to Improve the Scientific Writing of Introductory Biology Students
instructor feedback, integrated pedagogy, laboratory reports, Scientific writing, student motivation
We discuss a pedagogical strategy to improve the writing of laboratory reports. Our multipronged approach gauges students' comprehension beforehand, rewards early success, and focuses feedback on the most serious writing issues. In preliminary studies, more students were able to achieve our threshold for success in our introductory courses, and students reported being more motivated to write well. © 2011 by National Association of Biology Teachers.
