M. Savarese 1998 Journal of Geoscience Education v46 p61-66
The paleontology course described in this article has fully half of the lecture time devoted to group projects: reviewing original literature, engaging in debate, working with data sets and solving problems. In the lab section, groups work together on a research project and peer-review each other's term papers.
