Release Date: 2015-12-29
Genre: Science

Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) is a method of instruction where each student takes an active role in the classroom. The activities contained in this collection are specially designed guided inquiry activities intended for the student to complete during class while working with a small group of peers. Each activity introduces essential organic chemistry content in a model that contains examples, experimental data, reactions, or other important information. Each model is followed by a series of questions designed to lead the student through the thought processes that will result in the development of critical organic chemistry concepts. At the end of each activity are additional questions, which will generally be completed outside of class time and are more similar to questions that might appear on tests. Before each class, students should ensure that they are familiar with the prior knowledge that is listed at the beginning of every activity. These POGIL Organic Chemistry activities were written to cover most of the important concepts for a two semester organic chemistry sequence. The activities are grouped into organic 1 and organic 2, although that might vary from class to class depending on the textbook used. Some concepts do not have an activity, particularly if the concept is of narrow focus. The following are some ideas for introducing additional concepts that do not have an activity. • Assign the topic as homework/reading outside of class. • Mini-lecture on the concept. • Prepare a “mini-activity” on the concept to be done in groups during class. Usually a miniactivity consists of one model and questions on a single slide.

Organic chemistry

Publisher: Brooks/Cole Pub Co
ISBN: 0618308520
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Science

Designed to encourage active and collaborative learning in the organic chemistry classroom, this text is a collection of group activities (ChemActivities) that can accompany any organic chemistry text. These ChemActivities teach students how to think like scientists, rather than simply memorizing important conclusions arrived at by great scientists of the past. Clearly labeled scientific "Models" appear throughout each ChemActivity in bulleted and illustrated formats. These explanations of scientific theories help students develop their conceptual understanding of the material. "Critical-Thinking Questions" appear after each "Model" and ask students to explore ideas in a number of ways. Students might be required to explain a concept, draw a molecule, complete a table, or write an explanation about a topic to another student.

Guided Inquiry Explorations Into Organic and Biochemistry Revised First Edition

Author: Julie K. Abrahamson
Publisher: Cognella Academic Publishing
ISBN: 163189112X
Release Date: 2014-12-26
Genre:

This book takes students from the basic beginnings to a more thorough understanding of the fundamental concepts in organic and biochemistry. the concepts in this textbook are presented in small segments in a form that encourages students to explore and discover patterns and ideas. Diagrams, models, chemical reaction equations, and tables are used to present the information. a step-by-Step series of critical thinking questions follows each section to guide the student to important observations and to encourage students to work as a group to confirm the answers. Each activity begins with a list of prerequisite concepts and learning objectives. the activity concludes with exercises that reinforce, expand, and extend the concepts presented. the topics covered range from the basics of naming the simplest organic compounds to the applications of the principles of organic chemistry to biochemical molecules and processes. Julie K. Abrahamson, B.A. Bethany College, Kansas (1979), Ph.D. University of Oklahoma (1984), has been teaching general and introductory chemistry courses at the University of North Dakota since 1992. Her emphasis has been in courses intended for pre-Nursing students, where she has become well acquainted with their needs and challenges as they learn chemistry. in 2006, a workshop in "Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning" introduced new insights into alternatives to traditional lecture methods. since that time, Abrahamson has used Guided Inquiry approaches in her courses where possible, and has worked to develop new materials suited for these courses.

A Handbook of Organic Chemistry Mechanisms

Author: Peter Wepplo
Publisher: Curved Arrow Press
ISBN: 9780977931330
Release Date: 2009-02-01
Genre: Science

A Handbook to Organic Chemistry Mechanisms is designed to accompany a standard organic chemistry textbook. The book presents complete mechanisms, start to finish, without any steps skipped or left out. The mechanisms have been carefully written to show each step in a logical and easy to follow format. Students have enthusiastically attested to the ease with which they could understand the mechanisms. Reaction mechanisms are one of the most challenging aspects of organic chemistry. This book is derived from Part D of A Guide to Organic Chemistry Mechanisms. That book is a guided inquiry workbook that shows students how to study and enables them to learn reaction mechanisms. Student knowledge is increased step by step by completing mechanisms at easy, moderate, and textbook levels of difficulty. A Handbook to Organic Chemistry Mechanisms also relies on example-based teaching. Chemical reactions can be learned in context, the way infants learn. Learning reactions from rules is difficult when there are many exceptions. Substitution and elimination reactions are noteworthy due to the number of conditions that must be accounted for. With example-based teaching, you can deduce the importance that stereochemistry, structure, solvent, leaving group, charge, basicity, or nucleophilicity may have on a reaction. A Handbook to Organic Chemistry Mechanisms has been designed with the principle that our brains are pattern-matching machines. Therefore, an emphasis has been placed upon the patterns of reactions. Each chapter represents a basic mechanistic theme. That theme is repeated with the examples. Insightful explanations have been included with the mechanisms. This book will be a valuable resourcefor reviewing for an exam, solving problems, or studying for the MCAT.

Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning POGIL

Publisher: Amer Chemical Society
ISBN: 0841274231
Release Date: 2008
Genre: Science

The volume begins with an overview of POGIL and a discussion of the science education reform context in which it was developed. Next, cognitive models that serve as the basis for POGIL are presented, including Johnstone's Information Processing Model and a novel extension of it. Adoption, facilitation and implementation of POGIL are addressed next. Faculty who have made the transformation from a traditional approach to a POGIL student-centered approach discuss their motivations and implementation processes. Issues related to implementing POGIL in large classes are discussed and possible solutions are provided. Behaviors of a quality facilitator are presented and steps to create a facilitation plan are outlined. Succeeding chapters describe how POGIL has been successfully implemented in diverse academic settings, including high school and college classrooms, with both science and non-science majors. The challenges for implementation of POGIL are presented, classroom practice is described, and topic selection is addressed. Successful POGIL instruction can incorporate a variety of instructional techniques. Tablet PC's have been used in a POGIL classroom to allow extensive communication between students and instructor. In a POGIL laboratory section, students work in groups to carry out experiments rather than merely verifying previously taught principles. Instructors need to know if students are benefiting from POGIL practices. In the final chapters, assessment of student performance is discussed. The concept of a feedback loop, which can consist of self-analysis, student and peer assessments, and input from other instructors, and its importance in assessment is detailed. Data is provided on POGIL instruction in organic and general chemistry courses at several institutions. POGIL is shown to reduce attrition, improve student learning, and enhance process skills.
