Now that the Fall 2021 semester is slowly wrapping up, we will be taking a month off from posting on our Teach the Mechanism blog to enjoy the winter festivities.

During our brief hiatus, though, we would still love to hear from our community about any requests or submissions for the upcoming Spring 2022 semester. If you or your colleagues use Joel’s book/Smartwork and have any organic chemistry teaching insights that you would like to share, please feel free to reach out to Selin at

Thank you so much to everyone for reading and commenting on our posts! Until we reconvene in the new year, we wish you and your students a restful holiday season.
