This workshop is designed to help participants develop an understanding of scientific inquiry in the high school chemistry classroom. Participants experience the structures that support the implementation of inquiry-based lessons in their chemistry classrooms by engaging in a lesson on chemical bonding. The inquiry strategies that will be illustrated in this workshop include aspects of the scientific process such as making simple observations, developing models, data collection, making evidence-based claims, and refining models and defending claims in a classroom discussion. The workshop will include opportunity to discuss common concerns about the implementation of inquiry in high school chemistry classrooms and strategies for overcoming common barriers.
