#GivingTuesday: Chemical Manipulatives Models

Help KDP fund a Classroom Teacher Grant for “Chemical Manipulatives Models”, a Classroom Manipulatives project by Arthur Scott. He teaches 10th – 12th grade and has 1 year of teaching experience.

Application for Funding:

image_scott-arthur-1I teach in a Title I school in Memphis TN. I teach 5 classes of chemistry and 1 of physics for about 160 students total. My kids do not learn the material by rote memory or looking at white board notes. My students learn by tactile and visual simulation to capture the concepts. I teach from a cognitive constructivist approach. I require them to learn the concepts rather than random facts. Some of the most important tools that I use in this approach are models and manipulatives. I can 3D draw these on my smartboard to meet the visual approach of my students but if I had models that my students could handle it would meet the tactile needs of my students. I find it difficult to teach the molecular concept to my students without these types of manipulatives.

How the $150 would be spent:

I will deposit these funds into my school account and generate a School PO from Flinn Scientific to order the models.
