Conceptual physics in Junior High School

Release Date: 2010-06
Genre:

Studies indicate that qualitative understanding of phenomena, as expressed in students' explanations and predictions, is not satisfactorily achieved by most high schools and college graduate students. Even after instruction of basic domains such as introductory mechanics, students' conceptual understanding of topics remains almost unchanged. We argue that it can be done by unpacking the difficulties that are faced in this domain and by developing a method that responds to these problems discussed above. More specifically, we suggest that it is advisable to choose tasks that focus on explaining and predicting relevant everyday situations in the chosen domain (mechanics), and to provide students (and teachers) with conceptual basis as well as cognitive tools to carry out such tasks. These tools are derived from a qualitative problem solving strategy for explaining and predicting phenomena that deal with interactions, forces and motion.We also argue that teachers' professional development in this domain is the key to any future change and implementation of new methods for advancing the teaching of physics.

The Art of Teaching Science

Author: Jack Hassard
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781135890001
Release Date: 2013-07-04
Genre: Education

The Art of Teaching Science emphasizes a humanistic, experiential, and constructivist approach to teaching and learning, and integrates a wide variety of pedagogical tools. Becoming a science teacher is a creative process, and this innovative textbook encourages students to construct ideas about science teaching through their interactions with peers, mentors, and instructors, and through hands-on, minds-on activities designed to foster a collaborative, thoughtful learning environment. This second edition retains key features such as inquiry-based activities and case studies throughout, while simultaneously adding new material on the impact of standardized testing on inquiry-based science, and explicit links to science teaching standards. Also included are expanded resources like a comprehensive website, a streamlined format and updated content, making the experiential tools in the book even more useful for both pre- and in-service science teachers. Special Features: Each chapter is organized into two sections: one that focuses on content and theme; and one that contains a variety of strategies for extending chapter concepts outside the classroom Case studies open each chapter to highlight real-world scenarios and to connect theory to teaching practice Contains 33 Inquiry Activities that provide opportunities to explore the dimensions of science teaching and increase professional expertise Problems and Extensions, On the Web Resources and Readings guide students to further critical investigation of important concepts and topics. An extensive companion website includes even more student and instructor resources, such as interviews with practicing science teachers, articles from the literature, chapter PowerPoint slides, syllabus helpers, additional case studies, activities, and more.
