    A place to discuss politics from any political viewpoint from any part of the world. Please remember that we don't all come into this with the same perspective. Here are the current rules: -Treat each respectfully. -No ad hominem attacks of other group members. -Do not tell other people how to vote. We are here to discuss politics, not the voting decisions of group members. -Don't bother SWB. -You don't have to read any thread that offends you, but feel free to present your point of view. -Posters whose comments do not engender thoughtful discussion may be removed from the group.

    <p>For those of us attending the conference at Valley Forge Christian College.</p> <p> </p> <p> <a href="http://www.rfwp.com/valley-forge-convention.php" rel="external nofollow">http://www.rfwp.com/valley-forge-convention.php</a></p>

    <p>This group is initially for those members who will be teaching high school chemistry in the fall of 2013. Chemistry can be a challenging subject to teach at the high school level, so the goal is to share resources, expertise, emotional support, and lots of virtual chocolate. Please come ask questions and share your solutions. Tales of successful labs and tales of lab woes are also welcome.</p> <p> </p> <p>I thought it might be a good idea to start it up with a handful of threads - really just titles -to keep us organized:</p> <ol style="list-style-type:decimal;"><li> <strong>Introductions/Check-in</strong>: introduce yourself and your student, your curriculum and perhaps your goals (Honors, regular, just surviving high school science). Check back in here if you make a major change, talk about the results and maybe what you would do differently next time. This could be helpful for those who come after.<br /></li> <li> <strong>Planning</strong>: What you are working on over the summer to prepare; how you are organizing your materials and how you are setting up your lab materials.<br /></li> <li> <strong>Resources: </strong>I thought I would link Dicentra's resource thread and we can add as we go.<br /></li> <li> <strong>Topics: </strong>Maybe Dicentra could set this up? ;) We will all be using different curriculum, but will cover roughly the same material, if not always in the same order: introduction, atoms, stoichiometry, states of matter, solutions, nuclear chemistry, etc. The idea would be that if you have a question about Boyle's Law, then you would go to the thread on "Gases" and ask your question or talk about the cool experiment you did or link a great Youtube lecture on the topic. This way we can stay organized, I think. :tongue_smilie:<br /></li> <li>Whatever else you can think of: math for chemistry, field trips, and maybe a section for "<strong>practical application</strong>." One of my favorite ideas for filed trips in chemistry came from mcconnellboys with the suggestion of visiting distilleries, breweries, etc. to see chemistry in action. Kitchen chemistry is a great teaching tool as well.<br /></li> </ol><p></p> <p>Have a great year and enjoy the journey.</p>
