    Reaction Mechanisms Booster (Self-assessment resources)
    This is a set of resources aimed at promoting the development of the skills required to successfully identify and generate organic mechanisms in order to demonstrate a good understanding of the underlying chemical principles. Students complete a task independently, and then mark their own work as they watch talking mark scheme videos where an expert explains how to get to the correct answers. Our research has shown that engagement with these resources is perceived to be highly beneficial by students, and leads to an increase in their confidence to tackle mechanistic problems. If you are a non-UK (or non-A-level) teacher, the terms AS and A2 may be meaningless to you, but the resources should still be useful for anyone studying organic reaction mechanisms. The worksheets are available in Word format, and you should feel free to edit these to meet the needs of your students and the course you are teaching. You can download the files individually by selecting them on the left and clicking download. Please watch the short briefing video on You Tube and read the teachers' notes carefully. Contact me on if you have and questions or comments. Additionally, I would like to thank Henry Pearson for suggesting the format of the alternative self-assessment proformas which you may choose to use with your students.

    Organic Reaction Mechanism Learning and Revision: Student Booster Pack
    This is a set of resources which are available for students studying organic chemistry, particularly at AS and A Level in the UK. You will complete a problem set at the appropriate level, and will then mark your own work with reference to 'Talking Mark Schemes', videos produced by expert who talks through the answers to the questions. During the research project which created these resources, we found that >85% of students stated that completing the self-assessment process was beneficial to their understanding of organic reaction mechanisms. Click on the link to the briefing video in the window to the left to get full information on this activity. These activities are based on teaching innovations we have developed for use with Chemistry students here at the University of Southampton, and we would welcome your feedback if you find them useful.
