To (belatedly) round out our series on scaffolding in the classroom, I am sharing my technique for scaffolding in Statistics, which I shared during yesterday’s poster session at STP’s Annual Conference on Teaching. Below is a copy of the poster and ancillary materials are available here. Other materials are available on request, comment below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check out part 1 and part 2 of this series for more ideas on scaffolding!
In my Cognitive Psychology course, the “big” project is writing a research proposal. I was told at the beginning of this semester that this assignment had never been previously assigned, which surprised me. As an undergraduate psychology student, I wrote these quite frequently for my upper level electives. Nonetheless, I decided to go where no person has gone before at WPU.
