Graduate student Emily Atieh's paper, titled "Through the Looking CLASS: When Peer Leader Learning Attitudes Are Not What They Seem", has been published in J. Chem. Educ., and is now available through J. Chem. Educ. website. This paper talks about Teaching Internship which is a credit-bearing program composed of undergraduate near peer instructors (teaching interns, or TIs) that offers supplemental assistance for students in the General Chemistry courses. TIs develop a dual role of student and instructor over time, they afford a unique opportunity to explore the middle area of the expert/novice spectrum. The paper provides a description of the TI model and uses a mixed-methods approach to analyze how the peer leadership role impacted the TIs’ attitudes about learning chemistry.
