Reflection: Routines and Procedures Equilibrium and Le Chatelier's Principle - Section 8: Standard Mediated Instruction (SMI) Time


Within our school's schedule at the end of each block period we have 20 minutes of SMI time.

  • The purpose of this time is for intervention and extension.  
  • In my classroom students either work on projects, start their homework, get caught up from being absent, do test corrections, retake exams, or talk with me about their grades. 
  • Similar to other independent work times in class it is important that I monitor students to ensure that they remain on task, as that this time can easily turn into "free time" where students just chat with each other.  To help students I always have a list of "what to work on during SMI" on the board which will include things that students can do if they feel like they have nothing to do.

Equilibrium and Le Chatelier's Principle

Unit 8: Unit 9: Reaction Rates and Equilibrium
Lesson 3 of 6

Objective: Students will be able to define chemical equilibrium and use Le Chatelier's Principle to predict how changes in pressure, concentration, and temperature affect systems in equilibrium through doing an activity, taking notes, watching videos, and performing practice questions.

Big Idea: Equilibrium occurs when the rates of the forward and reverse reactions are equal. Le Chatelier's Principle can be used to predict how changes in concentration, pressure, and heat affect these equilibrium systems.

Big Idea: Reactions proceed forward and backward, and these opposing processes reach a state of equilibrium based on many conditions.
