The Biology Taboo Wiktionary: A tool for improving student comprehension of key terminology in introductory biology courses
Abstract Knowledge of terminology and understandingKnowledge of terminology and understanding of processes and concepts is a key foundational requirement in many disciplines. Learning a new disciplinary "language" is often a challenge for novice students, yet a strong foundation is essential for success in the major. This activity utilizes an in-class version of the commercial game Taboo©, in which students must define disciplinary terms in their own words, and without obvious terms. The in-class game is followed by a collaborative wiki, which provides students with an interactive opportunity to review and describe new terminology, and concepts. The goal of these activities is not only to develop a deeper appreciation for, and understanding of, the connections present between various biological processes, but to achieve a foundational understanding of the discipline. The wiki also serves as a resource to prepare for the final exam or to complete laboratory reports. © 2013 Woodhead Publishing Limited. All rights reserved.d Publishing Limited. All rights reserved.
