Abstract

The authors describe a one-credit biology tutorial developed for a group of at-risk science majors. Instruction in the tutorial centered on teaching students to use effective learning strategies such as listening, textbook reading, studying, and note taking. The tutorial students achieved higher final grades than at-risk students in a control group.
