HSPI Activities: The Review Process Clearly defined process to move activities through a review cycle, including all necessary forms, paperwork, systems and personnel to: Submit Review Revise Classroom Test Approve for publication
The HSPI Activity Collection, Volume 1 Biology: about sixty activities, divided into AP and First-Year groupings Chemistry: about sixty activities, divided into AP and First-Year groupings Look for an announcement on the POGIL website with full details about how to purchase the collection, around January 2012
The HSPI Activity Collection, Volume 1 Subject AreaTopics Included Chemistry Nature of science, experimental design, particulate matter, structure of atom, naming & formulas, bonding, gases & states of matter, solutions, kinetics, equilibrium, organic, measurement, electron arrangements, periodic trends, mole & stoichiometry, themodynamics, acids & bases, redox, nuclear Biology Nature of science, experimental design, biochemicals, body systems, cell processes, cell structure, evolution, ecology, genetics, homeostasis
HSPI Goals: Professional Development Partners and Editorial Board members presented workshops during each year of the initiative The HSPI Project is developing a collection of materials for workshops, to address the needs of secondary school teachers
