Omtale: Chemistry and the Environment
As evidenced by the chapters within this volume, the field of chemical pedagogy is diverse. Models employed by authors of these chapters include guided-inquiry learning, peer-mentoring, service learning opportunities, project-based exercises, flipped classrooms, and studies-abroad. While these approaches differ, the one common thread is the use of environmental topics to capture the attention of students who then use chemistry concepts to further explain those issues and concepts. "Chemistry and the Environment: Pedagogical Models and Practices" focuses on context-based pedagogy in which chemistry concepts are presented to students through the examination of environmental issues and concepts. These examples of context-based instructional practices are diverse, and evaluation for each requires its own methodology. Therefore, there is a great need in the chemical education community for more published examples of practices and assessment tools for chemical educators. This much-needed book provides examples for those interested in applying chemistry concepts to environmental topics to stimulate student learning.
