Event: Electricity and Magnetism Contextualized Content Course (Physics 2) - Week 1

Jul 17, 2006
Jul 20, 2006

7/17-7/20, 7/24-7/27, Northeastern University: 8 full-day sessions.

Middle and high school teachers of science. Priority given to Boston Public Schools teachers and pre-service teachers at BSP partner institutions (UMB, NEU, BPS).

This course is contextualized to the FOSS "Magnetism and Electricity" and Active Physics "Light" and "Communication" curriculum modules. Using hands-on, inquiry experiences, many similar to those used in these curriculum modules, this course provides participants with an in-depth understanding of the following concepts and principles: reflection, refraction, and interference of waves, electric and magnetic forces and fields, electrical circuits, electromagnetism and the electromagnetic spectrum. In addition to providing high-level content, while modeling modern pedagogical techniques, this course aspires to immerse teachers in the process of inquiry, build teachers' awareness of their role as facilitators in a student-centered environment and help them address effectively students', as well as their own, common pre- and misconceptions specific to the curriculum materials. While this course is primarily designed to support high school teachers of physics, middle school teachers of science are welcome to enroll in this course.
