Reflection: Student Ownership Introduction to Electron Orbital Levels - Section 3: Applying Flipped Lesson Learning


One skill I am trying to build with my students is self-reliance.  I want my students to use me as a last resort for information simply because I want them to feel independent and capable of finding answers that they do not already know.  I have no problem conversing with them to help them come to conclusions on their own, but I do not want to hand-feed any answers directly without students at least attempting to find answers on their own.  I also am happy to check answers and confirm whether they are correct or not, but I also want students to learn to correct themselves.  Not only is this going to build self-reliance, it also helps students remember what they did incorrectly first and what the correct approach is.

Introduction to Electron Orbital Levels

Unit 2: Electron Configuration & Bonding
Lesson 1 of 9

Objective: SWBAT identify the 4 different electron orbital sublevels (s, p, d, & f) and correlate them to elements' location on the periodic table.

Big Idea: The organization of the periodic table is usful for identifying different electron energy levels, including orbital sublevels.
