|Teacher Level:||High School
|Description:||This workshop is open to teachers worldwide who have taken a 2-week or longer Modeling Workshop in 1st semester chemistry content.
Peer leaders: Levi Torrison, PhD; Phil Root
We will begin by debriefing your modeling experiences thus far and re-visiting updates to the "Core" Chemistry units. Then we will move on to our exciting "Beyond the Core" Units:
Unit 10 - Models of the Atom
Unit 11 - Periodic Table and Bonding
Unit 12(b) - Intermolecular Attractions and Biological Macromolecules
Unit 13 - Chemical Equilibrium
Unit 14 - Acids & Bases.
An overview is at the AMTA webpage on curriculum storylines.
You may either work to get hours towards re-certification or earn graduate credit.
