Moon, Alena; Stanford, Courtney; Cole, Renee; Towns, Marcy – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
Recent science reform documents have called for incorporating authentic scientific discourse into science classes as engaging in discourse has shown to result in numerous benefits. Whether these benefits are observed in students depends upon the quality of the discourse in which they engage. However, characterizing the quality of student-student…

Monroe, Manus; Abrams, Karl – Journal of Chemical Education, 1985
A simple technique for predicting the relative acidic strength of oxyacids and their anions has been developed. Describes the use of this technique for correctly predicting anion hydrolysis reactions, aqueous Bronstead-Lowry acid-base reactions, and which salts will dissolve with strong aqueous acids. (JN)

Schrader, C. L. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1985
Describes activities in which students: (1) propose creative atomic models that account for observed properties and predict additional experimental data; (2) calculate empirical formulas for 27 binary compounds; (3) propose a model to explain why certain elements have certain valences; and (4) arrange hypothetical elements into a periodic chart.…

Dunkleberger, Gary E.; Snyder, Sue – Journal of Chemical Education, 1985
A workshop was designed to (1) train teachers to become experts on chemical safety and storage; (2) examine and evaluate chemical storage in 12 Carroll County (Maryland) schools; and (3) develop a safety guide for all county science classrooms. Development, implementation, evaluation, and implications of the workshop are addressed. (JN)

Minter, David E.; Reinecke, Manfred G. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1985
The standard two-semester organic chemistry course at Texas Christian University was reorganized as a two-cycle course. In addition, lectures and laboratories were made into separate courses with the laboratory consisting of a formal lecture session and experimental work. The structure, advantages, and disadvantages of the course are discussed.…

Mjojo, C. C. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1985
Background information, procedures used, and results obtained are provided for an experiment in which a phase diagram is determined using a differential scanning calorimeter. Commercial samples of D-camphoric anhydride (Eastman Kodak) and D,L-camphoric anhydride (Aldrich) were used in the experiment. (JN)

Bayer, Richard – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Examines reasons why individuals in academic institutions do not feel the same safety-related pressures as individuals in nonacademic institutions. Also lists elements that should be included in any basic safety/health program and describes the steps taken at one college to improve laboratory safety. (JN)

Johnstone, A. H. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Hypothesizes that overloading the working memory may leave no space for thought and organization such that faulty (or even no) learning takes place. Provides examples of this hypothesis and possible remedies. These remedies focus on design of laboratory manuals and equipment and on curriculum content order. (JN)

Herron, J. Dudley – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Examines how information from psychological and educational research was used to develop and implement a remedial chemistry course, focusing on the viewpoint of a learning process based on research in cognitive science. Comments on textbook selection, testing, scheduling, instructional strategies, and other areas are included. (JN)

Doyle, Michael P. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Discusses: (1) the conflict about the importance of research at predominantly undergraduate schools; (2) sources of funding for undergraduate research (several of which are targeted at predominantly undergraduate institutions); and (3) undergraduate research at doctoral-granting institutions. (JN)

Cary, William R. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Examines the present state and future of high school chemistry, and whether a crisis exists in chemistry at the high school level. Also proposes a new model for chemistry education and suggests that new materials and sufficient training and retraining are needed to implement new ideas and instructional strategies. (JN)

Brooks, David W. – Journal of Chemical Education, 1984
Alternatives to traditional, large-class lecturing are discussed. They include using canned lectures, demonstrations and lecture experiments, computer simulations, problem-solving strategies, breaks during lectures, and movies. Moving out of large classrooms to laboratories and resource rooms (or giving an examination) is also suggested. (JN)
