Making Chemistry Relevant : Strategies for Including All Students in a Learner-Sensitive Classroom Environment Hardback
Edited by Sharmistha Basu-Dutt
Stemming from a series of National Science Foundation grants and initiatives, this book presents a unique collection of strategies that are effective in chemistry classrooms.
Featuring chapters from chemistry professors and research groups from a wide variety of research universities, the book discusses chemistry concepts including environmental chemistry (with discussion of global warming, smog, local air quality, and air pollution regulations), chemistry laboratory research, and forensics, among others.
The coverage takes a cognitive constructivism approach, casting the teacher as a facilitator for students constructing solutions to problems, rather than a promoter rote memorization.
