Join us on Thursday July 27th at 4 PM EST for our 52nd Slither!
Sarah St. Angelo from Dickinson College will share some of her strategies for helping students remember concepts and skills from prior coursework that they "should" remember before her junior/senior inorganic course. Student-led review presentations, LMS-based warm-up topics and quiz, and a rapid collaborative recollection of models of bonding help Sarah's students remember important ideas and take ownership of their learning from early in the semester.
