Chisman, D. G.
Trends, from 1960 to 1963, in the teaching of chemistry in secondary schools in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom, and the United States of America are outlined in the first part of this report of a 1963 working session on the teaching of school chemistry and are amplified for some countries in appendices. Summaries of addresses on aspects of the theoretical chemistry of bonding, crystals, energetics, equilibrium and chemical species in solution, and kinetics, emphasizing implications for classroom teaching, are included, and an account of alternative examination techniques provided. Notes on chemical bonding, the use of wave mechanics in school chemistry, techniques of determining combustion heat of solids, liquids, and gases, examples of examination questions from Belgium and England, lists of apparatus, films, charts, and books displayed, and a list of participants are appended.
