Bailey, Rebecca; Stickle, Laura; Brion-Meisels, Gretchen; Jones, Stephanie M. – Phi Delta Kappan, 2019
Many schools and out-of-school organizations use social-emotional learning (SEL) programs to boost students' skills. Yet research shows that these programs can be difficult to implement and don't always meet students' needs. In response, Rebecca Bailey, Laura Stickle, Gretchen Brion-Meisels, and Stephanie Jones propose a new approach to SEL…

Dean, Natalie L.; Ewan, Corrina; Braden, Douglas; McIndoe, J. Scott – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Comprehension of the 3D structure of objects usually represented in 2D is a critical part of understanding molecular geometries. The frequency with which students actually get hands-on with 3D molecular structures is often limited to a singular laboratory session. We sought to develop a set of molecular shapes that were inexpensive enough not only…
