The Confused Student in Introductory Science

The Confused Student in Introductory Science

Abstract:

A student's confusion in response to course material is often interpreted as a sign that the student is not learning well or that the teacher is not teaching well. But an analysis of student journals in introductory college science courses reveals five specific sources of confusion that may be inherent to the process of learning in science. This essay was published in College Teaching and is available online: The Confused Student in Introductory Science.
