Teacher of Chemistry


The teaching of Chemistry in our School occurs in 8th – 11th Forms. In 8th – 9th Forms Chemistry is studied 2 hours a week with 1 hour a week studied in 10th – 11th Forms.

In 10th Form pupils attend the Structure and Properties of Organic Bodies. Polymers facultative lesson.

The principal aim in the study of Chemistry is to develop the personalities of pupils via this subject and the interaction between adapting the pupils to ever-changing conditions of life, the development of inner motivations to learn, encouraging an interest in the study of Chemistry and the development of cognitive and creative faculties in pupils.

In the study of the subject a curriculum of foundation level considered through a course of concentric conceptions is used. E.E. Minchenkov and A.A. Zhurinare the authors of a Chemistry textbook for 8th and 9th Formers. The Chemistry curriculum for 10th – 11th Formers is a logical continuation of the School’s foundation course.

The abilities and degree of interest in 10th and 11th Forms are taken into consideration. Teaching is conducted on a differential scale according to the pupils’ capabilities for studying the subject.

L.A. Tsvetkov’scourse of Organic Chemistry is studied in 10th Form whilst in 11th Form O.S. Gabrielyan’s course of General Chemistry is made use of.

Multilevel methods oriented towards personality development of study are applied.

The following techniques are used:

  • Paracentric which is when in lessons conditions for discovering the pupil’s potential are created;
  • Dialogic: pair work with mixed levels;
  • Modular education is when the material covered in 10th – 11th Forms is presented in complete blocks rather than in small portions.

Various assessment methods are used in the process of studying Chemistry: oral assessment, frontal assessment, lab and practical work, tests, diagnostic tests, didactic games, Chemistry dictations with self and mutual correction; seminar lessons and reports (10th – 11th Forms).

Pupils of 8th – 11th Forms take part in annual Chemistry contests in the School. Winners are awarded with certificates and presents. Our pupils participate also in regional intellectual marathons.

As part of the Week of Chemistry a competition newspaper is published, creative works are exhibited, presentations and projects are conducted.

The School’s Chemistry lab has good material and technical resources. A great role in the study of the subject is played by chemical experiment which combines well with other forms of study including multimedia. The lab is equipped with a teacher’s computer with a plasma monitor which make lessons complcompletely interesting and absorbing and we have a wealth of software to cover all topics of Organic and Inorganic Chemistry.

In the teaching process non-traditional forms of lessons are employed: comedy lessons, auctions, debates, taking an element of Chemistry to court, didactic games: topic games, role plays, business games using problem solving methods. Different topics are reinforced with visits to the Polytechnic Museum.

For those wishing to obtain deeper knowledge of the subject or to get to grips with complex themes extra lessons are held.
