About the Project

Scientific practices are the methods that scientists use to ensure that their findings are valid and includes learning to ask questions, analyzing and interpreting data, engaging in argument from evidence, and synthesizing scientific knowledge.One available resource to help students learn scientific practices is primary scientific literature.  Reading and deconstructing primary scientific literature essentially allows students to experience the logic of moving from a problem or question to a set of data to a new conclusion. The long term goal of my research is to use scientific literature as an educational tool in order to highlight and promote scientific practices.
