Using the Chemistry Lab for STEM Exploration Before Explaining 

What comes first in your chemistry classroom, explanations or lab? Traditionally, chemistry is “taught” and then followed with a highly structured lab to reinforce the learning. However, the 5E Instructional Model flips this order upside down! Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate make up the 5Es, with Exploration right up front. But what does an exploration-based chemistry lab look like? How do you take a more traditional lab and convert it to an authentic opportunity for student STEM discovery before they read a single sentence from a textbook or listen to a single lecture? In this hands-on workshop, we’ll tackle these questions and show you how to facilitate discovery that will provide a truly 3D experience of chemistry in alignment with the NGSS. 

Presenter: Dr. Chris Moore, Associate Professor, University of Nebraska, Omaha and Co-Author, Experience Chemistry, Savvas Learning
