Informal Writing Assignments for Biology

Figure Writing in Biology
Developed by John Egan
The purpose of this assignment is to instruct students on the importance of writing figure legends.  A simple three question format is designed to answer the basic questions behind each figure: What is it? Why did you do it? What were the results? The What?-Why?-What? format is a simple guide that students will find easy to recall when writing scientific papers for any course.
