“Analyze, Acquire, Apply, And Write” As A New Learning Model In Science, Jeong Choe Apr 2015

“Analyze, Acquire, Apply, And Write” As A New Learning Model In Science, Jeong Choe

Faculty Publications & Research

I have developed a new teaching and learning model called AAAW, which stand for Analyze, Acquire, Apply and Write. This model grows from action research and unique experience in teaching a biochemistry course to high school students who are talented in math and science. In this model, students first "Analyze" lab data to generate questions that lead them to "Acquire" background knowledge. Students then go back to the data and "Apply" their new knowledge to better understand the data. Finally, students "Write" about the connections they make from their reading, data analysis, and application of the data. The rationale behind ...


Biochemistry Instructors’ Views Toward Developing And Assessing Visual Literacy In Their Courses, Kimberly J. Linenberger, Thomas Holme Jan 2015

Biochemistry Instructors’ Views Toward Developing And Assessing Visual Literacy In Their Courses, Kimberly J. Linenberger, Thomas Holme

Chemistry Publications

Biochemistry instructors are inundated with various representations from which to choose to depict biochemical phenomena. Because of the immense amount of visual know-how needed to be an expert biochemist in the 21st century, there have been calls for instructors to develop biochemistry students’ visual literacy. However, visual literacy has multiple aspects, and determining which area to develop can be quite daunting. Therefore, the goals of this study were to determine what visual literacy skills biochemistry instructors deem to be most important and how instructors develop and assess visual literacy skills in their biochemistry courses. In order to address these goals ...
