Summary
This volume offers a critical examination of a variety of conceptual approaches to teaching and learning chemistry in the classroom. Presenting up-to-date research and theory and featuring contributions by respected academics on several continents, it explores ways of making chemical knowledge meaningful and relevant to students as well as strategies for effectively communicating the core concepts essential for developing a robust understanding of the subject. Structured in three sections, the contents deal first with teaching and learning chemistry, discussing general issues and pedagogical strategies using macro, sub-micro and symbolic representations of chemical concepts. Researchers also describe new and productive teaching strategies. The second section examines specific approaches that foster learning with understanding, focusing on techniques such as cooperative learning, laboratory activities, multimedia simulations, and role-playing. The final part of the book details learner-centered active chemistry learning methods, active computer-aided learning, and trainee chemistry teachers` use of student-centered learning during their pre-service education. Comprehensive and highly relevant, this new publication makes a significant contribution to the continuing task of making chemistry classes engaging and effective
