Physics Instruction That Facilitates Learning Among Underrepresented Groups
written by Jennifer Keil, Nicole Schrode, and Rebecca Stober
The Physics and Everyday Thinking High School (PET-HS) curriculum, engages students in science practices of generating and defending claims using evidence and argumentation as a means of developing and formalizing physics principles. This preliminary study focuses on how students who are typically underrepresented or under performing in traditional physics classes respond to the learning cycle used in the PET-HS curriculum. Students in PET-HS classes in two different schools were given the same assessments before and after developing ideas about three commonly misunderstood concepts. Findings suggest that students from underrepresented groups show no significant difference in posttest score outcomes as compared to students in majority groups. We will discuss how non-traditional curricula, like PET-HS, may facilitate a learning environment where all students are given access to scientific principles and practices.
