In the newly updated 7th Edition, Chemistry: A Guided Inquiry continues to follow the underlying principles developed by years of extensive research on how students learn, and draws on testing by those using the POGIL methodology. This text follows the principles of inquiry-based learning and correspondingly emphasizes underlying chemistry concepts and the reasoning behind them. This text provides an approach that follows modern cognitive learning principles by having students learn how to create knowledge based on experimental data and how to test that knowledge.

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.

The use of the laboratory is a valuable tool in developing a deeper understanding of key chemical concepts from the experimental process. This lab manual encourages scientific thinking, enabling readers to conduct investigations in chemistry. It shows how to think about the processes they are investigating rather than simply performing a laboratory experiment to the specifications set by the manual. Each experiment begins with a problem scenario and ends with questions requiring feedback on the problem.

This hands-on workbook encourages active, collaborative learning and helps build a stronger conceptual understanding of chemistry by guiding students through self-directed explorations using POGIL (Process-Oriented Guided-Inquiry Learning). The book's active learning activities ask students to look carefully at new problems, construct logical conclusions based on observations, and discuss the merits of their conclusions with peers. POGIL is designed to improve student retention rates and to teach students to think analytically and collaboratively in teams, like scientists do, rather than attempt to memorize the material. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) is a pedagogy that is based on research on how people learn and has been shown to lead to better student outcomes in many contexts and in a variety of academic disciplines. Beyond facilitating students’ mastery of a discipline, it promotes vital educational outcomes such as communication skills and critical thinking. Its active international community of practitioners provides accessible educational development and support for anyone developing related courses. Having started as a process developed by a group of chemistry professors focused on helping their students better grasp the concepts of general chemistry, The POGIL Project has grown into a dynamic organization of committed instructors who help each other transform classrooms and improve student success, develop curricular materials to assist this process, conduct research expanding what is known about learning and teaching, and provide professional development and collegiality from elementary teachers to college professors. As a pedagogy it has been shown to be effective in a variety of content areas and at different educational levels. This is an introduction to the process and the community. Every POGIL classroom is different and is a reflection of the uniqueness of the particular context – the institution, department, physical space, student body, and instructor – but follows a common structure in which students work cooperatively in self-managed small groups of three or four. The group work is focused on activities that are carefully designed and scaffolded to enable students to develop important concepts or to deepen and refine their understanding of those ideas or concepts for themselves, based entirely on data provided in class, not on prior reading of the textbook or other introduction to the topic. The learning environment is structured to support the development of process skills –– such as teamwork, effective communication, information processing, problem solving, and critical thinking. The instructor’s role is to facilitate the development of student concepts and process skills, not to simply deliver content to the students. The first part of this book introduces the theoretical and philosophical foundations of POGIL pedagogy and summarizes the literature demonstrating its efficacy. The second part of the book focusses on implementing POGIL, covering the formation and effective management of student teams, offering guidance on the selection and writing of POGIL activities, as well as on facilitation, teaching large classes, and assessment. The book concludes with examples of implementation in STEM and non-STEM disciplines as well as guidance on how to get started. Appendices provide additional resources and information about The POGIL Project.

Guided Inquiry for General Chemistry provides students with an interactive introduction to key concepts in chemistry. This workbook covers all of the topics and ideas presented within a first-year chemistry course for science majors. Short chapters guide students to understanding through simple questions, followed by more advanced practice exercises designed to be completed in a group setting with instructor assistance. Each chapter introduces readers to fundamental chemistry concepts, challenges them to think and reflect on those concepts, and examines essential applications of those concepts. Topics in the book include atomic structure, bonding, Lewis dot structures, nomenclature, chemical reaction types, stoichiometry, states of matter, kinetics, equilibrium, energetics, electrochemistry, and nuclear chemistry. Each chapter features explicitly stated learning outcomes, a list of prerequisite chapters that will assist readers in their understanding of the current chapter, background information with guiding questions, and application questions to facilitate learning and retention. Comprehensive and approachable in nature, Guided Inquiry for General Chemistry is designed for first-year chemistry courses at the university level but is also well suited for introductory and high school chemistry courses.
