GNSC 0373 - Methods of Chemistry Education

Credits: 3

This course emphasizes the inquiry approach to teaching chemistry. Students will be introduced to the chemistry programs developed by the National Science Foundation and the current curricula based on those programs. Students will make a series of planned observations, totaling 30 hours, in area schools. These observations will be the basis for discussion of topics including evaluation, discipline, laboratory procedures, and safety. Students also will present lessons to both their classmates and to one of the classes that they have observed. Other areas presented in this course will include professional organizations and journals, chemistry software, audiovisual materials, and IEP’s.
