W84: The POGIL Project Workshop: Climate Change Concepts in General Chemistry

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) activities have been used in a large number of general and introductory chemistry courses. While the activities themselves are designed to engage students in the learning process, sometimes the activity content does not engage the students. We have written a set of classroom POGIL activities that use climate change concepts to teach fundamental chemistry content. Another unique aspect of these activities is the incorporation of socioscientific models and questions, which are designed to encourage data-driven discussions of non-scientific content. Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to work through a sample activity. Time will be spent highlighting the range of chemistry content covered in this set of activities and discussing how these activities might be incorporated into a general chemistry curriculum.
