Discovering the Scientist Within offers an utterly unique approach to the research methods course. Rather than taking students through statistical methods one at a time, the authors provide a series of realistic and engaging case studies with each design-focused chapter presenting a single study start to finish.

Activity: A Guided Question Activity for Teaching Research Methods

This activity requires students to work collaboratively to answer a series of guided questions concerning various research designs (e.g., between subjects design, within subjects design, factorial designs). This activity stimulates reflective thinking about the key elements of the various research designs and provides an environment for students to ask questions and engage in elaboration and argumentation. This activity concludes with each student having a completed study guide.
