Unfortunately until now I have not found a program like this for chemistry. The reason I am so excited about the program is that, even though I believe in inquiry-based learning, adopting it in the chemistry classroom has been difficult for me.... I was never taught how to teach chemistry in an inquiry-based atmosphere.... No teacher is an island. This master’s program will not only help the teachers that go through the program but as the word spreads about the units that are developed, more and more chemistry teachers will start using inquiry-based learning.
