Making Stoichiometry and VSEPR Quick and Easy for Everyone!
Learn a simple and easy high yield strategy to help ALL of your students learn how to find mass relationships between reactants and products. In a single lesson, you can help even your most mathematically challenged students understand and remember the steps. This strategy can then be used to make your lessons on limiting reagents and percent yield about the concepts and not just the math. Then we will shift to VSEPR, and you'll learn how to teach your students all 6 molecular geometries listed in the TEKS in mere minutes. Once they have learned this kinesthetic strategy, students will be able to differentiate and identify each of the molecular geometries. Each strategy will be completely modeled, not just explained, and each participant will be given access to all the resources they will need to implement these strategies immediately.

Chemistry - One in a Million
How do we teach topics such as electron configurations—that were graduate school material a generation ago—so that high school students can learn and understand them? Walk away with some effective ways to teach the structure of the atom. Using a user-friendly spectrophotometer, explore how light interacts with dyes. Then use unique spectrum cards to show how atoms, color, and spectra are related, making a conceptual bridge between a core chemical technology—making dyes—and the fundamental structure of the atom.

Bonding Mania
Teaching different types of bonds might be challenging but when it includes fun games and activities it will motivate the students and encourge them to be active participants.
Teachers will go home with fun activities and puzzles to use with the students to help them undertsand the concept of bonding and periodic table. come join the fun and get energized to teach bonding and periodic table.
