I organized a "research experience for undergraduates" session at the SEA meetings this year. I was inspired to include some sort of research activity in any and all classes I teach. No problem, right? Problem: my sophomore level introduction to environmental and resource economics course has 88 students. I had to figure out how to implement a research project in a large classroom. I presented the following assignment in class today (Download ECO 2620 Research Project). It involves data collection (n=5), some analysis (comparison of means and linear interpolation) and writing (a 200 word abstract). I think it is do-able in classes larger than 88 with some GA help for grading. Comments and suggestions are appreciated!
