The problem l.jpg
The Problem disaffected S4 standard Grade Chemistry Class?

  • My pupils often complain that they find Standard Grade Chemistry “hard”.

  • When they find a concept difficult to grasp they tend to disengage, and fail to persevere.

  • Pupils who perceive themselves as “not good at Chemistry” may fail to achieve their potential and predicted grades.

Pupil comments l.jpg
Pupil Comments disaffected S4 standard Grade Chemistry Class?

  • “I liked using the juggling balls to represent electrons”

  • “While we were learning the topic it was easier for me because we done (sic) more physical activities” a kinaesthetic learner

  • The songs and poems help us learn because it’s fun & we can remember the words. REM: Losing my electrons!

  • I found this topic very fun as we got to do more activities but I didn’t like Mrs Celnik’s poem (ah well, can’t please all of the people all of the time…)

Poem! disaffected S4 standard Grade Chemistry Class?

Sing a song of twopence, electroplating’s great

Put them at the negative electrode to plate

We can electroplate coins to cover them in nickel

But do not try to spend them or you’ll end up in a pickle!
