American Journal of Physics
written by Stephen J. Robinson, Valerie K. Otero, and Fred Goldberg
published by the American Association of Physics Teachers
Although several successful inquiry-based physics and physical science curricula have been developed, little has been published that describes the development of these curricula in terms of their basic design principles. We describe the research-based design principles used in the development of one such curriculum and how these principles are reflected in its pedagogical structure. A case study drawn from an early pilot implementation illustrates how the design principles play out in a practical classroom setting. Extensive evaluation has shown that this curriculum enhances students' conceptual understanding and improves students' attitudes about science.
