CHEM562-01C Chemistry Classroom Discourse (with Hannah M Sevian)
This course, designed for middle and high school chemistry teachers with at least three years of experience in teaching chemistry, focuses on facilitating and analyzing classroom discourse when implementing chemistry formative assessments. Throughout the course, teachers continue to build and analyze assessment portfolios and annotated formative assessment tools, as well as assessment snapshots that capture formative assessment classroom implementation. This course builds on understanding of chemistry formative assessments and focuses on analyzing classroom discourse, specifically studying teaching purposes, relationships of teacher-student and student-student discourse to chemistry content, communicative approaches, patterns of discourse, and teacher decision making and interventions.
