One thought on “For Everyone!”

  1. The video on the teacher domain web page is a resource I will share with school staff and parents to describe my new (for me) approach to teaching chemistry with modeling. I am very excited after the training workshop this summer to go back to school with the experience and resources to implement modeling instruction in a sequence to uncover chemistry in a logical way to a novice with inquiry.
