Science Writing Resources for Learning (ScWRL)

The Science Writing Resources for Learning (ScWRL) website provides practical resources stemming from our work with SCIE 113 and SCIE 300, another communications credit course at UBC. You will see resources for students and resources for educators, the latter including many downloadable files to use or adapt. This website is part of special projects supported by the UBC Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund. The "squirrel videos" are an integral part of this site.

These short, entertaining and educational videos were designed to help students with science writing. Created with SCIE 113 and SCIE 300 in mind, we created the videos, which feature "Grammar Squirrel," based on the topics students in those two courses were most struggling with in their writing.
