The Introduction to Modeling Instruction in Chemistry II course is intended for teachers who wish to investigate a model-based approach to concepts not addressed in the Modeling Chemistry I workshop. These include an evidence-based treatment of the internal structure of the atom, periodicity and covalent bonding, intermolecular forces, equilibrium and acids & bases. This should appeal to teachers of an honors or AP course whose students can move through the basic concepts more rapidly.
NOTE: The leaders strongly suggest participants have attended the face to face chemistry I Modeling Instruction workshop previously as they build on the models, pedagogy, and content in the previous units.
