Journal of College Science Teaching
written by Murray Jensen, Kirsten Farrand, Leanne Redman, Tamara Varcoe, and Leana Coleman
Graduate teaching assistants are frequently asked to lead discussion groups in tutorials, review sessions, or problem-based learning classes. In their preparation, what to teach is often emphasized over how to teach. This paper provides a few simple teaching strategies for TAs in the biological sciences, but the ideas are applicable to physical science educators as well.
