Chem Ed 2015 ~ Conversations at Kennesaw State University

Chem Ed 2015 at KSU

What a mole-riffic time we are having here in Kennesaw, Georgia!  Some highlights from my time here include:

~ The very appropriate cooling towels (Chill-its) we (ChemEd X) handed out to folks who stopped by our table, ran the Mole Run, or we saw between sessions. Several teachers have been diving in to research how they work.  Chemistry in action!

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.
