Modeling Instruction: A Learning Progression That Makes High School Chemistry More Coherent to Students
Cullen, Deanna M.
Journal of Chemical Education, v92 n8 p1269-1272 Aug 2011
Current chemistry education reforms have reestablished the process of science as a priority. Despite this progress, many students cannot comprehend the interrelatedness of the content. Modeling Instruction incorporates the components of inquiry with the added benefit of a logical sequence of conceptual development that provides a dynamic learning progression. The cohesiveness of the chemistry content along with using evidence to build understanding makes learning chemistry more intuitive for students.
