Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Modeling Instruction in Chemistry is a constructivist and model-based curriculum that has been utilized in teacher workshops and classrooms for approximately ten years. This curriculum was developed from theory and techniques developed in Modeling Instruction in Physics, a well established course with proven efficacy in improving student conceptual understanding. However, there has been little empirical research into the efficacy of the Modeling Instruction in Chemistry curriculum. This case study is a first attempt to determine the effect this instructional program has on conceptual development in Chemistry.
