Gonzales High School


Chemistry Honors (Period 4)

Mr. Richard Lee Krum

Course Description


The Honor Chemistry courses at Gonzales High School exist to provide academically strong and motivated students with opportunities to enhance and enrich their education.  The courses challenge students to think and create at the highest levels of their abilities and encourage them to excel as they work to realize their potentials.  The Honor chemistry courses have established higher standards and expectations than courses in the regular curriculum.  Higher standards are defined as an accelerated pace and greater depth.  Students enrolled in the course are expected to develop refined and advanced critical thinking skills and apply those skills in examinations, presentations, labs and projects.

 The Honor Chemistry class will move at a faster pace and will present students with expectations for higher quality work, not necessarily a greater quantity of work, than those in the regular curriculum.  Students will be expected to complete activities requiring higher levels of thinking.
