3.5.7 A multi-modal approach in teaching chemical bonding using the Parallel Curriculum Model

Cedar Girls’ Secondary School started restructuring the school curriculum using the Parallel Curriculum Model (PCM) as a framework in 2014. The first adapted Chemistry unit on Chemical Bonding was designed in 2015 to investigate if this approach can help heighten interest and deepen the learning of concepts in Chemistry. Based on feedback from the study, the lesson materials were further modified and improved for subsequent batches of students in 2016.
