From Science teachers Elizabeth Link and Alyssa Stephens -November 15, 2022
The Dreher Chemistry Department has introduced into each unit a Science Literacy Day which is intended to help students practice reading and understanding current research in the field of Chemistry.
The American Chemical Society produces monthly ChemMatters Magazines which include research in STEM fields as viewed through a chemical lens. The Dreher Chemistry Department has adopted these magazines into the regular curriculum to encourage reading and comprehension in the science classroom. These articles are written specifically for the high school reader and encourage high school students to make connections between chemistry and the world around them. An article from a new field of study is chosen for each unit ranging from earth and space science to art, culture, food, and history.
