Teaching Resource: Idea Submission

Classroom resources are an important member benefit of AACT and we are always looking for new and unique ideas to help grow the AACT classroom resource library.

We invite teachers to submit an original teaching resource idea that you have designed for publishing in the AACT Classroom Resource Library. A teaching resource can be in the form of an activity, demonstration, lab, lesson, or project. We are looking for valuable teaching ideas that diversify the library.

Some ideas for consideration include:

  • Escape room or competitively spirited activities
  • AP Chemistry activities
  • Teaching resources where students "take on the role of _____ " as part of the activity
  • Connecting an activity with an existing ChemMatters article

Please note: In the spirit of this opportunity, an "original" teaching resource should be an authentic creation by the participating teacher. For example, it should not be an adaptation from a published source such as a Flinn kit, or a book.
