Writing is one of the cornerstones of the sciences, but is rarely emphasized in the STEM classroom due to its burdensome nature for the instructor. Students who are not given the opportunity to learn how to write will struggle with success in their academic and professional careers over the long term.

A calibrated peer-review system coupled with a well-designed writing assignment, not only alleviates the burden on the instructor, but also teaches the student to think critically, to analyze data, to organize, and to appropriately analyze and critique the works of their peers while preparing them to enter into the scientific and health associated professions where they will need to use these skills. The University of Houston's Chad Wayne will discuss how to design, create, and implement a calibrated peer-review writing assignment for use in the STEM classroom.

*CIRTL Cast Series: February: Learning in the Active STEM Classroom*
Research - and common sense - shows that students learn better in active classrooms when compared to traditional lecture-based courses. But with so many teaching methods to choose from, how do you know which are most beneficial? In this series we explore several innovative strategies designed to enhance STEM learning. This series is organized by University of Houston through the CIRTL Network.

This event is coordinated by the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT). Iowa State University is a member of The Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) Network. CIRTL is an NSF Center for Learning and Teaching in higher education.
