Abstract Title: AP Chemistry Content Knowledge and Guided Inquiry Lab Instructional Strategies
Abstract: With the extensive content requirements for Advanced Placement Science courses, teachers may find it challenging to teach adequate content without compromising time for laboratory data analysis during lessons. The College Board published a series of guided inquiry experiments for AP Chemistry with the goal that students have the opportunity to engage in science practices while learning the necessary content. This study examines how instructional strategies, such as small group presentations and whole-class consensus discussions about these guided inquiry labs, may influence student assessment performance on nationally normed AP Chemistry released questions.
