Learning about the periodic table and how the elements are arranged are both essential to success in chemistry. Students and teachers have struggled to explain periodic trends based on the placement of the elements on the periodic table. In this ChemBasics Talk, Rachmad Tjachyadi offers everything necessary to plan a unit on the topic including linked NGSS standards, introductory activities and handouts, student and teacher notes, and manipulative activities. This content will be shared with the new teacher in mind but experienced teachers will find it helpful as well. Breakout rooms and a closing discussion will provide opportunities to collaborate to develop new classroom ideas as well. Join us! Register for this (FREE) hour long Zoom meeting to be held October 7th at 8pm EST.

ChemEd X ChemBasics Talks are Zoom meetings consisting of 20 - 30 minute presentations, followed by breakout rooms designed to dig deeper into the topics covered and allow participants to share their own ideas. When the breakout sessions end, the group will have a time for reflections and final thoughts. Teachers are asked to keep their video on when possible, ask questions and participate in the discussion. These live Zoom events are free, but registration is required. Space is limited to 100, so register early! (Note: Please do not register if you cannot attend the live event. The recordings are typically published within a week of the event and freely available to anyone on ChemEd X.)
