This book is the result of years of mentoring and helping other chemistry teachers who were often asking if I would put some of my labs into a book. My name is Deanna York and I have been teaching high school chemistry for the past 22 years. As a chemistry teacher I wanted my classroom to be full of hands-on learning experiences. During those early years of teaching I found that many labs were not teacher friendly. The labs were not quick to copy, easy to complete and fast to grade. The lab days were often frustrating for both the teacher and student. Teacher friendly chemistry provides a format that allows teachers to schedule many hands-on learning opportunities without spending a lot of time preparing and grading.
It is my sincere hope that the materials available on this site allow teachers to do more labs and activities while being able to complete all the other tasks teachers are required to do.
