I want my students to walk away from the lesson with an understanding of what Calories are in relationship to the body and energy. I want students to look at nutrition labels and evaluate foods based on the amount of energy consumed when eating a serving. Students need to be able to recognize the relationship between what they eat and their ability to function.
My Goals for this class can be summed up as follows: I want my students to enjoy mastering the content material, and to draw connections between chemistry and their lives. This goal is going to be a "constant" in my chemistry classroom. Students will always know my goals/expectations because they will always be the same. I want the classroom atmosphere to be one of enjoyment; my students will take pride in the science they are learning!
