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.

Remote: Courses that are typically taught face-to-face will be delivered remotely this spring. As opposed to an online course, which requires no live sessions and allows a student to study anytime, a remote course is either: (1) a course with live class sessions delivered via web conferencing, or (2) a course with pre-recorded lectures that a student can watch anytime, typically paired with live discussions sessions. For more detail on the remote format of a specific course, contact the instructor.
