Now that summer is quickly approaching, we will be taking these next few months off from regularly posting on our Teach the Mechanism blog to catch some rays of sunshine in the great outdoors.

This means that we are now open to submissions for the Fall 2021 semester. Because classes will still be held in mixed formats going forward—whether that means online, in-person, or hybrid—we would appreciate hearing about our readers’ course plans for the future. If you or your colleagues use Joel’s book/Smartwork and have any teaching insights that you would like to share with our organic chemistry community, please feel free to reach out to Selin at

Thank you so much to everyone for reading and commenting on our posts, especially during such unpredictable times. Until we reconvene again in August, we hope that you all enjoy your well-deserved breaks!
