W03: Teaching Physics for the First Time
Date: Thursday, February 12
Time: 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Description: With the decline in the number of physics graduates who enter the teaching profession, many teachers are assigned to teach physics and physical science with little or no formal preparation. "Teaching Physics for the First Time" is designed to provide the novice and experienced instructor who has been assigned physics or physical science with a standards and benchmark-correlated learning cycle curriculum. Examples of lesson plans, lab activities, demonstrations and sample assessments for core topics kinematics to magnetism will be presented. Organizer: Jan Mader, Room Location: Offsite
