Discussion points:

I’m trying to find out if explicitly referring to Johnstone’s triangle during teaching, and asking students to use it to use it to formulate their ideas, will help them to understand tricky ideas in Chemistry (Structure and Bonding). Above all, I’d like to see if this will help them to make links between apparently distinct ideas (on a macroscopic scale), by making connections on a sub-microscopic level.

I’d be really interested to hear ideas from people for questions I could ask students (potentially in interviews) to determine how well they can link the conceptual levels, and make links between ideas.
