CUR Monographs

Eloquent Science: A Practical Guide to Becoming a Better Writer, Speaker, & Atmospheric Scientist (external link)
This book – written by David M. Schultz and published by the American Meteorlogical Society – is a direct outgrowth of Daphne LaDue’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program at the University of Oklahoma. Schultz started teaching the scientific communication to students, and it evolved eventually into this book. Chapter 8 is online in full and is written using examples from what Schultz knows best – meteorology – but is general information applicable to anyone. Schultz is a professor of experimental meteorology in the Division of Atmospheric Sciences and Geophysics, Department of Physics, University of Helsinki, and the Finnish Meteorological Institute in Helsinki, Finland, and a reader at the Centre for Atmospheric Science, School of Earth, Atmospheric, and Environmental Sciences, The University of Manchester. He was born in Pittsburgh, Penn., received his bachelor's degree from MIT. in 1987, his master's degree from the University of Washington in 1990, and his doctorate from the University at Albany, State University of New York in 1996.

Registry of Undergraduate Researchers (external link)
Please encourage your students to sign up for the Registry of Undergraduate Researchers. The purpose of this registry is to facilitate connections between undergraduates and graduate schools seeking high-quality students who are well prepared for research. More information and the submission form are available at www.cur.org/ugreg. Graduate schools that are interested in purchasing a subscription to the registry should contact Robin Howard at robin@cur.org. Read letter to students from Robin Howard, senior director of membership services for CUR (PDF, 50k).

Student Assessment of Their Learning Gains SALG / URSSA - Undergraduate Research Student Self-Assessment (external link)
SALG helps faculty assess learning in science courses. A specific version, "URSSA – Second Version," of the SALG can be used to assess undergraduate student research experiences. Both instruments were developed at the University of Colorado for programs and departments to use in assessing the student outcomes of undergraduate research. URSSA focuses on what students learn from their UR experience, rather than whether they liked it. If you have questions or comments about URSSA and its use, contact Anne-Barrie Hunter at abhunter@colorado.edu.
