  1. Hello! I’m a first year Chemistry teacher trying to implement some/most of the modeling curriculum in my classroom. I went to grad school for physics and took classes in Physics Modeling, so I am trying to take what I learned there and translate it into something doable with the chemistry modeling curriculum. I would LOVE to see the rest of what you did in your workshops- sifting through the unit teacher notes is not the same as reading your blog!

  2. I am interested in attending a Modeling Instruction workshop next summer in Chemistry. I sure would like to know where it is being offered!

  3. I am looking for a copy of the teacher materials from the workshop. Do you know where I can find them? I am a chemistry teacher in Utah.

  4. Thank you for this! I have the modeling chem curriculum and am trying to figure out how labs are done (as I’ve not taken the modeling course). I read through Gary Abud’s blog and it’s great as well. My question is, for the first unit at least, there aren’t any lab handouts for students in my download, so what is given to them for labs?

    1. I’ve never used lab handouts for this unit (or most others). The general purpose/procedure/prep comes from pre-lab discussion. There’s much more useful post-lab discussion when they aren’t necessarily in lockstep with a procedure. With such simple procedures, it’s a great place to have students thinking about experimental errors, and ways to minimize those errors.
