DCHAS members interested in the topics raised by this morning's posts about Safety Data Sheets may be interested in a book chapter that is now available from ACS publications on "Teaching Chemical Safety & Info Skills Using Risk Assessment". The chapter is available at
and written by Samuella B. Sigmann of Appalachian State University, and Leah R. McEwen of Cornell University.
This chapter is part of a larger ACS symposium publication on Integrating Information Literacy into the Chemistry Curriculum.
There are many other chapters that may be of interest to educators interested in chemical information and safety issues, at all levels of the undergraduate curriculum. The chapter titles include:
Chemical Information Literacy: A Brief History and Current Practices
Building Data and Information Literacy in the Undergraduate Chemistry Curriculum
Teaching Chemical Safety and Information Skills Using Risk Assessment
Is It Scholarly? A Lesson Plan for Collaborative Chemistry Information Literacy
Chemistry in Context: Integrating Chemical Information Literacy, Scientific Writing, and Contemporary Issues in the First-Year Undergraduate Curriculum
Incorporating Chemical Information Literacy into Large Organic Chemistry Classes through the Laboratory
Integrating Information Literacy and Research Strategies into a Sophomore Chemistry Course: A New Collaboration
Reading, Writing, and Peer Review: Engaging With Chemical Literature in a 200-Level Analytical Chemistry Course
Research Strategy for Searching the Literature More Effectively
Learning through Two Lenses: An Analysis of Chemistry Students‰?? Information Literacy Skills
Chemistry and Information Literacy for Informed Citizens: Creating and Implementing a Chemistry Research Assignment Using News Media
Teaching Climate Change Concepts and the Nature of Science: A Library Activity To Identify Sources of Climate Change Misconceptions
Improving Information Literacy through Wikipedia Editing in the Chemistry Classroom: Lessons Learned
Debunking Pseudoscience: A Video Project To Promote Critical Thinking About Scientific Information in a General Chemistry Course
Student Engagement Through Writing: An Undergraduate e-Journal Project
I would note that ACS members can download specific chapters through their ACS Member Universal Access Benefit if their campus does not have a site license for ACS publications.
