The Journal of Chemical Education AP Special Issue is in print. Greg Rushton and I were happy to highlight the special issue for high school chemistry teachers and other stake holders at BCCE in August. If you haven't already taken a look at the articles, I hope you will find some time to check them out. I encourage you to read the first article of the following list. It is an editorial written by Greg Rushton, an Associate Editor of the Precollege Section. This editorial will help put all the articles in context for you. Please share your thoughts about the articles as you read them.
