Chemistry in Context Workshops

Get hands-on training directly from the authors

Chemistry in Context Workshops are developed to ensure you are well-prepared to use the text and lab manual with your students. You have a short amount of time with your students; make every minute count.

The workshops focus on explaining how to successfully use the text to hook your students on chemistry. You will be prepared and you will save time because the author team will familiarize you with the material—old and new. You'll walk away with sample syllabi, exposure to interactives, and discussion points to engage your students in discussions about content and contexts.

Learn the Text's Content and Teaching Strategies

The lab is where the action happens. Some workshops include a lab component. In all CiC sessions the following topics will be discussed:

  • How to strengthen your students' connection between chemistry and current events.
  • Learn about the many interactives integrated into the new text: simulations, animations, and videos.
  • Get tips on investigation and assessment.
  • Learn how to adjust lab investigations into demos or take-home experiments.

Using Chemistry in Context

Join Editor-in-Chief Brad Fahlman as he walks you through strategies for using CiC in the classroom. He talks about instructional strategies that will engage your students, including how a variety of media (e.g., videos, simulations, labs, demos) can be used to initiate in-class discussions and assist students with retaining knowledge outside of the classroom.
