Reflection: Advanced Students Ionic Bonding With Lewis Dot Diagrams - Section 2: Quiz/Independent Reading


If time permits, a good supplement to this information is a enrichment lab activity to compare ionic and covalent properties.  I  did not do one in this unit, but one could be used to differentiate and provide enrichment for more advanced students. 

I  believe this would be beneficial for students that have a good comprehension of the material and are ready to test when most of the class needs more time for reinforcement.  

This is a long unit with a great deal of information.  This year I found that 25% of my students were ready for a summative (end of unit) assessment before the rest of the group. Towards the end of the unit, while some students were reviewing and reinforcing content, I had these advanced students help the other students.  However, I feel as though a lab would have promoted their interest in science more than the tutoring did, perhaps creating a longer lasting interest in science.

Ionic Bonding With Lewis Dot Diagrams

Unit 4: Unit 2-Periodic Table and Bonding
Lesson 7 of 12

Objective: SWBAT predict the number and types of bonds(i.e. covalent, ionic) formed based on elements' outermost electrons and position on periodic table

Big Idea: Ionic bonding can be represented using Lewis dot diagrams.
