Dr. Paula Kleintjes Neff

Researchers find value in using literature to teach science

Friday, May 19, 2017

When Dr. Paula Kleintjes Neff first read “Tigerland and Other Unintended Destinations," she knew that she wanted to share the book with her conservation biology students. The book, which the UW-Eau Claire biology professor describes as a biography and travelogue, is a series of stories highlighting international conservation efforts, stories that take readers on journeys near and far, from the great plains in the U.S. to the faraway jungles in Nepal, in search of threatened and endangered species. She soon found that the book helped her students better connect with class materials, reinforcing biological concepts and field research methods she covered in class, Kleintjes Neff said, adding that the book also introduced students to a variety of new species and the threats that put them at risk.
