W7: Atoms, Molecules and Ions, Oh My! Particulate Level Chemistry Inquiry Activities

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

This workshop will focus on strategies for incorporating inquiry instruction into your classes with a particular focus on particulate level models. Workshop participants will be introduced to some of the particulate level modeling activities that teachers who have completed the Target Inquiry (TI) program at Grand Valley State University have developed and tested with their students. Topics include physical and chemical change, equilibrium, and balancing equations. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to work through these activities, discuss important considerations for facilitating the activities, and learn strategies for incorporating more inquiry into their own classroom activities. Participants will receive a class set of materials to conduct the activities highlighted in the workshop and will be introduced the Target Inquiry web site where they can access student and teacher guides for over 40 TI teacher designed and tested inquiry-based chemistry activities.
