I am designing a unit based around petroleum chemistry. It is new and exciting for me and tied into my work as a mudlogger in the oil fields of west Texas before becoming a teacher. I am brushing up on my organic chem and gathering resources. My goal is to start with the standards, design an appropriate assessment, then see what assignments fill in the gaps between.
I believe I have a lot of tools in my teaching tool belt that are not being utilized. I believe this next unit may be a good way to utilize these in a easy connect to the world of my students.
