FELIPE, Esther González et al. Analysis of a New Teaching Approach to teach chemical bonding to High School Spanish students. Invest. Práticas [online]. 2017, vol.7, n.1, pp.5-30. ISSN 2182-1372.

This report shows the design and implementation of a New Teaching Approach (NTA) for chemical bonding to 1st year high school students (16-18y). To design and test the proposal several key aspect regarding chemical bonding have been determined after taking into consideration the student preconceptions. The NTA has been implemented in one experimental group while the control one has been taught with traditional methodology. The same comprehensive test has been offered to both groups after being taught chemical bonding, and the answers have been analysed. In the findings it is observed that the proposed NTA and the used teaching strategies let students develop a higher thinking analysis and a deeper knowledge of chemical bonding, although still some aspects regarding the role of energy in bond formation should be improved in NTA.

Keywords : chemical bonding; design and analysis; New Teaching Approach; High school students.
