Parts of a textbook powerpoint
Parts of a Book |authorSTREAMFirst, I want to identify a list of common pedagogical features that textbooks have that make them different from other types of books. By features I mean what are the specific elements or attributes of a textbook that help students understand the content in the book. This can range from chapter outlines and summaries to practice questions and glossaries. Second, I want to find out to what degree do those pedagogical features actually help students understand the content. Here I am searching for some empirical research that shows that specific features of a textbook may be more useful than others when it comes to helping students learn. Third, does the format of the textbook change or alter the usefulness of a pedagogical feature? This third question is challenging, but is important in the context of our work since students have the choice of format types — physical copies or electronic copies and the work we are doing has to be sensitive to the formats and I think I have a future post brewing that may touch upon my frustration at having to work with both formats, both from a technical perspective and from an educational culture perspective.

We redesigned the undergraduate introductory biology course by writing a new textbook Integrating Concepts in Biology [ ICB ] that follows first principles of learning. Our approach emphasizes primary data interpretation and the utility of mathematics in biology, while de-emphasizing memorization. This redesign divides biology into five big ideas information, evolution, cells, emergent properties, homeostasis , addressing each at five levels of organization molecules, cells, organisms, populations, ecological systems. We compared our course outcomes with two sections that used a traditional textbook and were taught by different instructors. We conclude that ICB improves critical thinking, metacognition, and disciplinary perceptions without compromising content knowledge in introductory biology.
Martin Genomics Program. Such headings should be formatted in bold or italics! Collectively, ICB students developed perceptions of the field of biology that more closely reflect the perceptions of professional biologists when compared with the traditional studen.
