A new value-added general chemistry course, using the studio instructional method to incorporate current educational research was designed and implemented at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Many literature-based activities designed to effectively teach chemistry concepts and confront misconceptions were adapted. These teaching methods and activities were woven into the course to provide the students with ways of learning chemical concepts and practicing scientific discovery, creativity and community.
