The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), publisher of Science, provides an educational resource called Science in the Classroom (SitC) that "helps students understand the structure and workings of professional scientific research." It looks like this: Graduate students provide annotations that are categorized as shown in the Learning Lens widget. Readers select one [...]
