Writing in the Life Sciences: A Critical Thinking Approach is distinguished by its goal-directed, problem solving, and audience-centered approaches to the writing process. Student writers can realize great improvements in the quality of their work when they take these approaches to heart and apply them consistently in practice. These same approaches should guide scientific writing instructors in designing assignments, preparing class presentations and activities, and evaluating students' papers. The instructor resources in this section of the website, which are accessible through the menus in the left frame, are intended to serve these aims. Adopt and adapt the resources to meet your students' needs.
