The Process of the Science Writing Heuristic Homepage

This web site will help you to become familiar with the process of the Science Writing Heuristic, SWH, and will provide you with an opportunity to view it in action.  These are real students and their instructor (a teaching assistant).  The session was not scripted nor was any portion rehearsed.  What you will see is a spontaneous interaction among the students with their instructor.

To watch the video segments, you will need the latest free version of RealPlayer. Follow this link to theRealMedia site and follow the installation instructions. If you already have RealPlayer and are having difficulty playing the video clips, try re-installing the latest software.

Some help with RealPlayer problems (particularly with Mac OSX) may be found at Northwestern University. For additional problems, contact your system administrator.
