Teacher Comments: Reading Journals in Chemical Engineering

BackBack to Comments on WTL

Ken Reardon, Chemical Engineering: The other thing I do, other than the poster sessions, is a reading notebook. I pick out relevant journal articles and they critique them. And the they have to say, if I gave them a grant for a lot of money, what would they do next? They have to summarize what the person did, what they did or didn't like about the conclusions, and what they would do next. This helps them to be critical of everything of the whole paper. At first, they don't know what to criticize. In what to do next, they shouldn't just go back and fix what the person didn't do right the first time.
