Active Assessment: Lesson Conclusions
brobertson13brobertson13

Active Assessment: Lesson Conclusions

(0)
A presentation which can be used by individual teachers (or by managers to train groups of teachers) to develop effective lesson conclusions. The presentation includes examples which are designed to support students to think about their learning and help teachers to evaluate the success of a lesson.
Oxidation states of vanadium

Oxidation states of vanadium

(0)
A presentation which teaches students how to calculate the oxidation number of a transition metal ion in a compound, going on to use vanadium as an example. The presentation shows how different oxidation states lead to different colours of compounds, and uses photographs to illustrate this. Ideal for A Level, Advanced Higher or equivalent.

Active learning: KWL Grid

(0)
A KWL Grid template (what do you Know, what do you Want to know, and what have you Learned) which can be adapted to fit any topic for any age group of pupils.
Electrochemistry

Electrochemistry

(0)
A detailed presentation which takes students through the principles of electrochemistry. Includes: - electrochemical cells - the electrochemical series - explanations of oxidation and reduction - electrode potentials - emf and associated calculations - fuel cells Ideal for A Level, Advanced Higher or equivalent.

Uses of elements

(0)
A PowerPoint presentation which can be used as the basis to teach students about uses of common chemical elements, based on their properties.
Global Warming: fact, theory or lie?
brobertson13brobertson13

Global Warming: fact, theory or lie?

(0)
A presentation looking at climate change, focusing on what the terms "global warming" and "the greenhouse effect" really mean, and addressing misconceptions around them. Students are encouraged to think critically about what they're being told in the media about two alternative theories of climate change: that it's being caused by humans, or that it's natural. The presentation begins with a concept cartoon., which encourages students to think about their pre-conceptions of key ideas, before moving on to a sections designed to ensure they understand the difference between facts and theories. It then moves on to look at facts, theories and myths around global warming and the greenhouse effect, before moving onto the alternate theories of climate change.

Enthalpy: Overview, Potential Energy Diagrams and Calculations

(0)
A presentation which can be used to take students through the idea of enthalpy, including how to interpret changes in enthalpy from Potential Energy Diagrams. There is a detailed, step-by-step guide on how to tackle calculations asking students to calculate the enthalpy of combustion, solution and neutralisation. Ideal for Scottish Higher, English A-Level, 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.
