About

Overview

Add the power of guided inquiry to your course without giving up lecture with ORGANIC CHEMISTRY: A GUIDED INQUIRY FOR RECITATION, Volume I. Slim and affordable, the book covers key Organic 1 topics using POGIL (Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning), a proven teaching method that increases learning in organic chemistry. Containing everything you need to energize your teaching assistants and students during supplemental sessions, the workbook includes once-a-week, student-friendly activities that are designed for supplemental sessions, but can also be used in lab, for homework, or as the basis for a hybrid POGIL-lecture approach.

Features and Benefits

  • EASILY ADAPTABLE TO ANY ORGANIC CHEMISTRY COURSE. This workbook makes it easy for you to take advantage of the benefits of Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) without giving up lecture.
  • PERFECT FOR TEACHING ASSISTANTS OR UNDERGRADUATE PEER LEADERS. Designed to help you get more out of your TA or peer-led supplemental sessions, this workbook includes special "To the TA" sections that cover the nuts and bolts of a successful implementation.
  • A WIDE RANGE OF FLEXIBLE ACTIVITIES. Choose from among 18 "ChemActivities" covering key Organic 1 topics and use them in whatever order works best for you. Each activity contains "The Big Picture" and "Common Points of Confusion" sections that steer students away from common pitfalls and toward an expert understanding of organic chemistry.
  • PROVEN EFFECTIVE IN INCREASING STUDENT LEARNING. Students learn best when they are actively engaged and thinking in class and working to solve problems and understand concepts the way real scientists do, by analyzing data and asking questions. The workbook activities improve student understanding of lectures and textbook reading and help them do better on exams. Special "To the Student" sections cover the nuts and bolts of using the workbook effectively.
