Instructional Ideas

  • Stop the video periodically and give pairs of learners compounds or molecules to draw Lewis structures from
Classroom Considerations

  • Classroom needs access to the Internet, a projection system, and a computer
  • Video assumes learners understand valence electrons
Pros

  • Video models how to draw Lewis dot diagrams or Lewis structures
  • The resource discusses how models have inaccuracies but are still beneficial for learning
Cons

  • None
