Green Chemistry

Fri, 11/08/2013 - 11:25 -- Deanna Cullen

This past summer, I took part in an online teaching training offered by Beyond Benign. According to the Web site, “Beyond Benign was created by Dr. John Warner, a founder of the field of Green Chemistry, to provide an approach and means for scientists, particularly those involved in green chemistry and sustainable science, to reach out to the public.” I learned a great deal from the training. I was exposed to many resources that I did not know existed. I found lessons that I can easily incorporate into my curriculum that make a connection between the student and the chemistry content. Nothing is more powerful in a chemistry classroom than when a student can identify how the course content affects their everyday life and their future.

Particulate Level Conceptual Questions

Wed, 10/30/2013 - 13:30 -- Deanna Cullen

NGSS and the new AP chemistry curriculum have included modelling in the chemistry curriculum, so it is imperative that we have access to good conceptual questions surrounding modelling. I am in the midst of researching the best sources of these types of questions and resources that will help teachers to design their own. If you have any suggestions, please post them here.
