Incorporating research articles into your science classroom can be a great way to engage your students, familiarize them with the scientific method, and show them how research is relevant to them.  Research articles are primarily written for scientists, however, and can be challenging to translate into an effective educational experience for undergraduate students.  In this workshop we will discuss how to choose appropriate science articles, how to help your students read and understand the main points of articles, and why you should consider using research articles in your classroom.
