Chemical Bonding and Structure in Elements - Deliberate Mistakes

(0)
Ideal for revision or consolidation. A series of paragraphs which contain a mixture of factually accurate and inaccurate information about bonding and structure in elements. Students work individually or in groups to identify the parts which are correct and the parts which aren't. They can use different colours of pen for each, and make corrections. This is very powerful at promoting discussion and critical thinking. Suitable for English A Level, Scottish Higher, or the equivalent.

Stereoisomerism

(0)
A PowerPoint presentation covering the topic the topic of stereoisomerism, including geometric isomers and optical isomers. Suitable for English A-Level or Scottish Advanced Higher.
Active Learning: Concept Cartoons
brobertson13brobertson13

Active Learning: Concept Cartoons

(1)
A PowerPoint presentation which explains how "Concept Cartoons" can be used by teachers as an active learning resource. Specifically, Concept Cartoons are very effective in teasing out preconceptions or misconceptions. They therefore relate neatly to the constructivist theory of learning. Concepts Cartoons can be used in any subject, and this presentation gives examples from across the curriculum. The presentation can be used for individual teacher learning, or in a training workshops for groups of staff.
