LEARN NC: Search Results Alternative energy: Where's the chemistry? In Why does chemistry matter in my life?, page 8 In this lesson plan, students research an alternative energy source and develop a five-minute presentation to teach the class about that energy source. Classroom Techniques: Formative Assessment Idea Number Three We’ve touched on a couple of formative assessment ideas in our blogging thus far, namely using Popsicle™ sticks as an all-student response system during class and using exit tickets to assess student learning. These formative assessment ideas involve all students, while giving teachers the information they need to make adjustments to their teaching. Ideas like these and others have proven to increase student learning. Another formative assessment idea that engages the entire class and provides evidence of student learning is the white board. Small, personal-sized white boards are inexpensive and if each student has them at their desk they can provide answers and information by simply raising them.

FREE - Federal Registry for Educational Excellence Browse By Subject Browse By Standard What is FREE? The Federal Registry for Educational Excellence (FREE) makes it easier to find digital teaching and learning resources created and maintained by the federal government and public and private organizations. Read more > The ChemCollective: Find Activities The ChemCollective is a collection of virtual labs, scenario-based learning activities, tutorials, and concept tests. Teachers can use our content for pre-labs, for alternatives to textbook homework, and for in-class activities for individuals or teams. Students can review and learn chemistry concepts using our virtual labs, simulations, and tutorials. The ChemCollective is organized by a group of faculty and staff at Carnegie Mellon who are interested in using, assessing, and creating engaging online activities for chemistry education. In the game Mixed Reception, students use molar mass calculations, the scientific method, and basic knowledge of chemical reactions to solve a murder mystery.
Turn Assessments into Fun Classroom Quizzes with Quizalize Quizalize is a great online tool that lets teachers turn quick classroom quizzes into exciting multi-player games. Teachers can create a quiz on any subject they want or use one of the hundreds of quizzes teachers have already created in the Quizalize Marketplace. Students can take the quiz on any device with a browser – laptop, tablet or smartphone – making it a great choice for BYOD learning environments. Teachers can choose to have all students play in class together or assign a quiz for homework. Teachers get real-time feedback on how each student is doing, so they can easily identify who needs extra help and who is ready for a new challenge. If you play with the Team Game feature, the whole class can compete in teams and see their results in real time on an interactive whiteboard.
Virtual Labs The links on this page are all VIRTUAL LABS offered by the Glencoe textbook company. These labs give the students the adventure of laboratory experimentation without costly supplies, worrisome environmental and safety issues, or time-consuming clean up. They are from all different areas of science: Biology, Physics, Genetics, Earth Science, Physical Science, and Chemistry. Research There are many graduate students world wide conducting thesis and dissertation research on the effectiveness of WebQuests. Some of these studies have made it into print as well, though the number of data-based studies in refereed journals is still small. There is not, at this point, any edited bibilography available about WebQuest research. Here, though are some places to get started to begin your own research.
misterguch.brinkster.net/2009homework.html My 2008-09 Chemistry Homework Assignments! Because I know it’s sometimes handy for new (and not so new) chemistry teachers to see what other teachers are doing, I’ve decided to post, in chronological order, links to each of the homework assignments I gave my chemistry classes in the 2008-09 school year. As you can tell, I like to write my own questions as opposed to using the textbook. A couple of warnings: Because I use these worksheets myself and my students are very aware of my website, I have not included the answer keys to any of these worksheets. I also can’t promise that they’re perfect in every way – some may have errors that I haven’t fixed yet. Another thing to keep in mind: If you don’t see a topic, homework was probably in some form other than worksheets.
