You’ve just completed a semester of General Biology at the college level. You may recall that one of my former students came to class to answer questions regarding his success in the class. What advice would you offer to others in future sections of this course? Please comment on the following (by class on May 23):
- What were your expectations of the class coming in and what was your previous college/science background?
- How would you approach the class differently now that you’ve completed the semester? Would you study differently? Would you read the book differently? Would you be more active in pursuing help? Would you try to find a friend in class to help? Would you take the Blackboard quizzes more seriously?
- What was the most challenging part of the course? Topic? Personal circumstance?
- How did your preconceptions change over the course of the semester? Did your prior knowledge influence/enhance/deter the way you learned?
