Point of View: Saving Energy in the Chemistry-Teaching Process and Improving Student Learning

Journal Article by: Daniel Tofan Digital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

Somewhere between high school chemistry and first-year college chemistry courses, there is a disconnect. Whatever the reason, most students are not prepared for college chemistry. As a beginning chemistry educator, the author found this to be frustrating. Feeling exhausted and discouraged, he began to think about what he could do to increase student performance while at the same time keeping his sanity. Here he shares how he found a renewed desire to teach by actively engaging students in the learning process.

I amost have the same experence as you, but the only diffrence is that i'm taching Chemistry for High school, so students are quite new to the topic, well of course that's side from the fact that they have passed to a little chemistry back in their integrated science subjects back in first year...
