Discussing a Science Article from the Popular Press


This activity engages students as critical readers of popular science writing. Any recent article will do, as students will seek out the methods, assumptions, and evidence in the piece. This task works especially well as a warm-up in the first meeting of a small class, but suggestions for an expanded assignment are given.
