The Physics Teacher
written by Melvin S. Steinberg and Camille Wainwright
Describes the Capacitor-Aided System for Teaching and Learning Electricity (CASTLE) project which is a high school electricity curriculum developed by high school and college physics teachers. The project is motivated by research on students' conceptual difficulties in electricity. The instructional materials developed allow students to challenge some of the common misconceptions regarding electricity.
