The new edition of “POGIL Activities for AP Chemistry” is on track to be released next winter. Laura Trout offered a sneak peak of the new activities and improvements that have been incorporated into the new edition in our March 27, 2023 ChemEd X Talk. She began with a brief description of what POGIL pedagogy is, and how it can improve your classroom. Then, attendees had an opportunity to try out a brand new AP Chemistry POGIL activity in small groups by taking advantage of Zoom breakout rooms. Laura answered many questions from attendees. Whether you are new to POGIL or an experienced user of these materials, you will find this Talk to be informative.
