Description of the Experience
Chemistry is one of the general subjects, whose learning is a necessity for all young people who want to get a general secondary education, including vocational education students.
       While working in professional educational institution I need to work according to the National vispārājās education standard, while providing learning content according to each specialty in detail, but the expected number of contact hours of professional education institutions is significantly lower than in mainstream schools, so I like chemistry teacher is a learning program pursuant to the above subject these conditions.
         I believe that chemistry is one of those subjects where the importance of respecting knowledge succession. especially because I have to face on a daily basis with students who have a relatively weak basic primary school eventually.
In this situation, the key is how I teach, and I was able to motivate the students to learning, to encourage students to participate fully in learning chemistry teacher, it is important to highlight why it is able to, know?
         Their lessons as often as possible to create a link with everyday life, or to be acquired by the profession as a chemical classes students must include topical themes. For example, I study subjects at the end of each call on the students to complete the self-assessment questionnaire containing questions that makes it difficult sir, sir that was the most interesting, as a learner evaluate their contribution to the learning process and the teacher should change. I, as a teacher, it is very important because assessing student responses can be more productive to organize the learning process.
         One of the problems mentioned by the students why they Chemistry learning difficult or even dislike is the lack of basic knowledge, so for me as a teacher often have to repeat a theme from the primary rate.
In order to encourage students' interest as much as possible for the pupils should be put to work actively as the only way students can understand the chemical processes.
      In his teaching on a regular basis using a variety of teaching methods such as group work, laboratory work, brainstorming, discussion, role-playing games. The main challenge is to ensure that students are actively involved in the conduct of hours, to discuss, ask questions, look for regularities, because if a student has questions to ask the teacher, so that the student is interested in learning process.
        Pupils' theoretical knowledge itself has little value if they do not know how to use. Thus, for each lesson we are looking for, where theoretical knowledge can be useful in everyday life or chosen profession. For example, learning the topic of oxidation processes found out where everyday we saskaranies by oxidation of whether these processes are pozetīvi or negative tm
         Finally, I want to say that the teacher should have an outstanding actor and the need to ensure that students would sense that they themselves want to learn and the teacher is only his counselor (helper).

Dissemination Seminar in Florence

31 October 2015 The seminar has been held in ITIS “A. Meucci” one of the schools involved within Goerudio project activities. Its main aim was to promote the results of the project toward a broad sample of stakeholders even overcrossing the number of people directly involved in the production of project outcomes. This purpose has been totally achieved especially thanks to the participation of students and teachers coming from different schools or from other classes instead of those ones directly involved within the project activities.
