Science Teaching Materials - NSTA Press Extras: Argument-Driven Inquiry in Chemistry. By Victor Sampson, Peter Carafano, Patrick Enderle, Steve Fannin, Jonathon Grooms, Sherry Southerland, Carol Stallworth, and Kiesha Williams Transform your chemistry labs with this guide to argument-driven inquiry.

Science Teaching Materials - NSTA Press Extras: Argument-Driven Inquiry in Chemistry

Designed to be a more scientifically authentic approach to instruction than traditional laboratory activities, the investigations in this book give high school students the opportunity to work the way scientists do. They learn to design and carry out investigations, develop models, collect and analyze data, generate arguments, and critique and revise reports. Thirty field-tested labs cover a broad range of topics related to chemical reactions and matter's structure and properties.


1617 Atomic Structure. 20 End of the School Year Memes That Only Teachers Will Understand. It’s the day that many of us teachers look forward to all year long- the last day of school.

20 End of the School Year Memes That Only Teachers Will Understand

We’re tired from spending 180+ school days encouraging, disciplining, working with our students. So just like any great year, we have some end of the year memes just for teachers. Don’t ask me for lesson plans and no one will get hurt. Don’t ask me anything about summer school. ૱ All characters — The Nature of Science - An Activity for the First Day of Class.

The Nature of Science - An Activity for the First Day of Class

Student-Centered Class. Using Student Centered Learning Strategies in the Chemistry ClassroomKaren Timberlake Department of Chemistry, Los Angeles Valley College, Valley Glen, we consider that learning is enhanced when students are engaged in the processing of information, then our challenge as teachers is to find creative ways to design dynamic learning environments that involve students in doing and thinking about chemistry.

Student-Centered Class

Over the past few years, I have developed a teaching strategy, which I call LecturePLUS that converts the traditional lecture into a student-centered format. The LecturePLUS environment integrates mini-lectures, formative assessments, and activity worksheets for team learning in the classroom. BackgroundMost of us who teach chemistry grew up learning chemistry from the lecture method.

Lecture Experiment. The Set Up...

Lecture Experiment

Equipment: 500 mL florence flask ring stand large ring placed below the flask small ring that fits over the neck of the flask one-hole rubber stopper 60 cm glass tubing large container of water The glass tube is bent in such a way as to connect the top of the flask with the bottom of the water container. The water in the container can be stirred by hand or with a magnetic stirrer. Kate's Science Classroom Cafe: 5 Ways to Use Classroom Window Space. If you are like me, you try to utilize every inch of your classroom.

Kate's Science Classroom Cafe: 5 Ways to Use Classroom Window Space

I'm fortunate to have a room with an entire wall of windows, so I have some suggestions here on how to use them. Here are 5 ways that you can use that valuable window real estate in your classroom. Kate's Science Classroom Cafe: Group Work Strategies for Upper Grades. I've come to realize that how I organize and prepare my students for productive group work can make or break my lessons.

Kate's Science Classroom Cafe: Group Work Strategies for Upper Grades

I've always seen the value in grouping students to complete tasks, but during my first years in the classroom I was so busy planning 'what' students would do that I rarely put much thought into 'how' productive they would really be. Kate's Science Classroom Cafe: Teaching Density with Visuals. Density is one of my favorite topics to teach.

Kate's Science Classroom Cafe: Teaching Density with Visuals

Students can struggle with it, but there are so many great visuals and techniques for teaching it that often times I am witness to a very real AH HA! Moment. That's the best part of teaching right? When explaining density for the first time to students, it is important to use an example that ALL students have background knowledge on. Try this elevator example! Rope off a pretend elevator in your classroom.
