This unique book explains the theory behind peer-led team learning, offers suggestions for successful implementation (including how to write effective group problems and how to train peer leaders), discusses how to evaluate the success of the program, and answers frequently asked questions.

It is designed as a workbook, to be used as the central focus of activity in a PLTL Workshop in organic chemistry. It is not a drill book, nor is it a self-contained guided inquiry book. As with the Workshops themselves, this book is intended to be a companion to a textbook in a lecture course. The Workshop problems are challenging, and readers need to prepare for them by studying the book, the lectures, and by working the end-of-chapter problems ahead of Workshop time. 

Structure:  Functional Groups; Structure:  Molecular Geometry and Bonding; Structure and Properties; Structure and Properties:  Acids and Bases; Reaction Mechanisms; Stereochemistry of Alkanes and Cycloalkanes; Alkenes:  Electrophilic Addition Mechanism: Carbocations; Alkenes:  Reactions; Free Radical Reactions: Thermochemistry; Organic Synthesis; Chirality; Nucleophilic Substitution Reactions; Elimination Reactions; Alkyl Halides and Alcohols:  Synthesis; Epoxides and Ethers; Conjugated Systems; Aromaticity; Aromatic Electrophilic Substitution; Pericyclic Reactions; Aldehydes and Ketones; Enols and Enolate Ions; Ester and  b—Dicarbonyl Enolates; Carbohydrates; Phenols; Carboxylic Acids; Carboxylic Acid; Derivatives:  Nucleophilic Acyl Substitutions; Lipids; Amines; Amino Acids and Peptides; Metabolism.

For readers preparing for a PLTL Workshop in organic chemistry, or for anyone interested in learning more about organic chemistry.
