Webinar- Chemistry Education Today for the World in 2050

Students today will be mid-career professionals in 2050. What will the world look like? As a truly central science did chemistry play a crucial role in adequately addressing the challenges identified in first quarter of the 21st century? And what lessons were learned from what was taught in chemistry courses about resiliency and how to thrive and live in the midst of the complexity, uncertainty and abrupt changes brought upon by the COVID-19 pandemic? 

Helping Students Show What They Know

AP Chemistry instructors Paul Price and Michael Farabaugh will share their experience in a 90-minute webinar, Helping Students Show What They Know – An AP Chemistry Review, on Wednesday, March 4th, 2020. They will share how they help students "show what they know" in preparation for the exam in May. 

AACT Webinar: The Role of JCE in Teaching and Learning

The Journal of Chemical Education (JCE) has a long history of supporting chemistry instructors by providing high quality information. The presentation will provide a brief outline of the history and structure of JCE, provide examples of exemplary high school level content and how teachers have used it, and show attendees how to best take advantage of the new AACT benefit of 25 free ACS downloads.

Introduction to the Claim, Evidence, Reasoning (CER) Framework

This webinar will introduce the Claim, Evidence, Reasoning (CER) Framework, implementation strategies, and how it helps create a classroom culture that more accurately reflects the ways progress in scientific knowledge and communication take place in the real world. Free webinar for all members!

AMTA Webinar Series: Engineering in the Modeling Classroom

Free Webinar for all members!

The NGSS calls for the use of the engineering design process in science classrooms K12.  Let’s discuss what this means for the modeling classroom.   Bring your ideas about how and when to integrate the engineering design process and engineering projects into your classroom.  

This session will be hosted by Kathy Malone and Anita Schuchardt. 

AACT Webinar Series: A Visual and Intuitive Approach to Stoichiometry

This webinar will discuss how to approach teaching stoichiometry problems using a table set-up (commonly referred to as Before, Change, After tables) to make the process visually appealing and more intuitive for students. The process emphasizes proportional reasoning and explicitly connects the calculations to the particulate nature of matter.

Connections to equilibrium calculations will also be discussed to show how this method can easily be integrated in to your curriculum and benefit your students in more than one area.
