The following moodle archive and documents are used for a course entitled Research Desing in Political Science (or in french Séminaire du Travail Universitaire). The course structure is oriented to competencies rather than to knowledge (methodology class). In order to help students to acquire and practice those competencies, we organize 3 types of exercices: critical reading, critical writing and critical evaluation. In addition to the exercises, students have to pass a mutiple choice exam (MCQ) about a peer review of a research paper (they have to read the paper/article 72 hours before the exam) and answer to MCQ. Each course is a organized as the following: 30' of activity debriefing, 60' explaining main topics about research desing and 30' about outcomes for next exercise.

Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

Here you can find reading guides that were created by Montgomery College faculty for undergraduate general chemistry students to use to guide their reading of OpenStax Chemistry. These guides are closely aligned with chapters 1-11 and were designed for use in the first semester sequence of general chemistry. They can be used in a flipped-style classroom where students complete them before the lecture. Or they can be used to reinforce important topics learned in class. Each study guide has fill-in-the blank style questions, as well as links to videos where similar problems are worked through. Finally, suggested practice problems relevant to the topic of each study guide are listed at the end.

TABLE OF CONTENTS3. How To Use This Project4. Historical Context7. Document Guide12. Primary Sources45. Guided Questions46. Primary Source Project49. About Us HOW TO USE THIS PROJECTThe 200-inch Hale Telescope (also known as the “Palomar Telescope”) at the Palomar Observatory in California was, in many respects, an impossible dream, as no manufacturer had successfully fabricated a mirror 200-inches in diameter at that time. The process of making the mirror, however, was lengthy, expensive, and riddled with failure and missteps.The primary sources in this project include correspondence and diagrams that document the delays, mishaps, and trial-and-error that went into fabricating what became a 200-inch Pyrex telescope mirror. These sources can be used to strengthen critical reading skills, to support inquiry-based learning exercises, and to expose students to the stories of failure that lie behind any and every scientific or technological breakthrough. Students are encouraged to annotate in the margins in order to support the development of document analysis and critical thinking skills. This project contains a suggested exercise that builds on the themes of the primary source documents.
