dc.descriptionThis investigation originally intended to uncover teacher behaviors that encourage students to persist in AP Chemistry in a typical urban Texas high school. As the investigation progressed, however, alternative reasons were sought for the persistence of some students when it became apparent that teacher behaviors might not be a factor in the decision to select AP Chemistry at the school under observation. In response to this, "Branding", a business theory which suggests certain attractive aspects of a product are promoted as a way to improve sales, is introduced as an alternative way of thinking about persistence in chemistry. "Branding" can explain why some students continue to select chemistry in the face of disappointing teaching. It is also argued here that "Branding" can encourage more students to take chemistry in the future.en_US
