Introductory physics students’ insights for improving physics culture
written by Acacia Arielle Evans, Kai S. Bretl, Amad Ross, and Abigail R. Daane
Ethnic and Racial Minorities (ERM) and women are underrepresented in classrooms and the field of physics. We can work to address this disparity by empowering students to change the physics culture within their own spheres of influence. Students in introductory, calculus-based physics classes from both two and four-year institutions participated in lessons from the Underrepresentation Curriculum, a freely available curriculum designed to bring social justice conversations to the classroom. Post unit, students brainstormed ideas about how to raise awareness of, and ultimately remove this inequity. We coded students' responses grouping analogous key words and phrases. Our analysis showed that students from both institutions generated similar sets of propositions. Their responses included having intentional conversations about equity issues and actively learning about their own biases. By following students' suggestions, we can create a more inclusive and diverse physics community.
