Use of pneumonic in chemistry
Dear Tutors/Teachers and Educators, Teaching chemistry can really be fun if you incorporate some entertaining elements in your teaching. I am a very strong believer in this concept and always try to teach a concept with some sort of pneumonic or some ideas that they can corelate it with in real life. However, teaching youngsters, especially high school students (whether in USA, UK, Japan or India) can be very challenging and these kind of ideas help me a lot during teaching. However, I always fear (especially with High school students) that over the period of time they may think of chemistry as fun subject but at the same time skip the whole seriousness of the topic and learning it really as a subject. It is usually difficult to follow a single (or even group of high school students) to see what they actually turn in into after like say 10 years so it is difficult to predict the pattern as to how much Fun is really A FUN. Does anyone here thinks in the same way or I am just too paranoid with this and just keep it cool and let student decide it?
