Using Models to Teach the Bohr Atom - What to do Now that They've Seen the Video Lecture

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Teaching with models is a good hands on way to engage students in the classroom, especially those who learn differently. Before switching to a flipped classroom, it always felt like there was not enough time to work with the models in class - there was too much information to present. Using a flipped classroom allows for more time to do hands-on activities, but there may not be models available to show exactly what you want students to learn. I have designed 3-dimensional models of the Bohr atom for students to use in class when learning atomic structure, ground state and excited state electrons and Bohr main shells. These models are appropriate for high school or introductory college level chemistry students. Use of the models is an example of Universal Design for Learning.


Cindy Tolman

Assistant Professor, Landmark College
Cindy Tolman received her Ph.D. in Biochemistry from MIT in 1986. She has been teaching Chemistry at Landmark College for 18 years, flipping the classroom for the last two years. Landmark College is a school for students with LD, ADHD or ASD. Cindy has been using Universal Design for Learning with her students since she began teaching, before knowing that what she was doing fit in that category.
