Chem Ed 2015!!

In just 2 weeks chemistry teachers from across the country will be heading to Kennesaw, Georgia! I am looking forward to being among my fellow teachers discussing labs, demonstrations, assessments, teaching methods, and so much more! Will you be there? If it is your first time I encourage you to be bold. Engage speakers and participants in discussion.

The Only Thing Constant in Life is Change

Wow! Night one of the semester we did the activity Change You Can Believe In. It was my second time facilitating, so I did a much better job of directing students when they asked questions and it went much faster than last semester. I did still, as expected, have students that were frustrated. One student asked me point blank what the difference between physical and chemical changes is.
