Current Events as Subjects for Term Papers in an Honors Freshman Chemistry Class.
McHale, Jeanne L.
Journal of Chemical Education, v71 n4 p313-14 Apr 1994
Describes the use of current events for term paper subjects in a freshman chemistry class to address such problems as the detachment of freshman chemistry principles from world issues, and the tendency of high achieving students to memorize facts without thinking critically. Students gain appreciation for the relationship between textbook chemistry and real-world chemistry. Includes sample topics and related chemical concepts. (PVD)
