Physics Education
written by Lillian C. McDermott, Peter S. Shaffer, and C. P. Constantinou
In physics, neither courses for majors nor for non-majors provide the kind of preparation required for teaching physics or physical science by inquiry. Indicates that science methods courses cannot help teachers develop the depth of understanding needed for this type of teaching. Offers a practical alternative for special physics courses for teachers.
