If you have never attended an official Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) training, you may consider doing so this summer. Many educators mention they have used POGIL activities. The POGIL pedagogy is not simply students completing worksheets. It requires training to implement it in order to achieve the desired effects of developing students process skills along with providing the opportunity for students to self discover content through collaborative roles.
The Biennial Conference on Chemical Education (BCCE) is providing an engaging afternoon program for K-8 teachers interested in physical science or chemistry concepts in their classrooms. This summer marks the 25th BCCE meeting and the first time the organizers have developed programming for the K-8 community. Registration is now open!
The Biennial Conference on Chemical Education is one of the best professional development opportunities available for chemistry teachers. The 2018 conference will be held at Notre Dame in South Bend, IN, July 29 - August 3. The ACS Division of Chemical Education sponsors this national meeting. There is excellent programming available for middle school science teachers, high school chemistry teachers, graduate students and college faculty. You do not have to be a member of ACS or the Division of Chemical Education to attend and/or present.
This conference has concluded. If you registered for the conference, you can still access the materials, but the conversation has closed.
Tools for Integrating Green Chemistry in Your Classroom features a hybrid of published Journal of Chemical Education articles, Beyond Benign lesson plans and additional supporting resources. Join us to gain a deeper understanding of how to integrate green chemistry principles and practices into your classrooms, by investigating novel technologies, exploring green chemistry alternatives to traditional experiments, and evaluating a fresh perspective on chemical modeling. Our goal is to spark interactive dialogue related to increasing the adoption of green chemistry principles and practices throughout the K-20 chemistry education spectrum.

Analyzing the Role of Science Practices in ACS Exam Items was published in the January 2017 issue of the Journal of Chemical Education. Tom Holme, a former ACS Exams Institute Director, authored the article along with Jessica Reed and Alexandra Brandriet.
Evidence for the Effectiveness of Inquiry-Based, Particulate-Level Instruction on Conceptions of the Particulate Nature of Matter was published in the February 2012 issue of the Journal of Chemical Education. The authors, Chad Bridle and Ellen Yezierski, will lead off the ChemEd X Conference: Chemistry Instruction for the Next Generation with the first session.
