Capacitor Behavior: A Film and Laboratory Unit in Physics.
Tullen, Colton
Because of a reading difficulty resulting in inability to acquire new information and concepts from the textbook used in a technical Physics I course, the investigator felt it appropriate to find another way for presenting the material. Since these students were majoring in electronics technology, they require good technique in the laboratory. The instructional package developed attempts to provide aurally and visually information conventionally found in textbooks. It included a 2-part film, a 32-page laboratory guide, and a 6-item pretest and posttest. The laboratory work comes between the two parts of the film. The second part of the film, besides substantiating the student's findings, also acquaints him with improved data gathering and handling techniques. An analysis of test results showed that the students learned better from the film and hands-on laboratory activity. It was suggested that any changes made in the instructional package would minimize further the extent of test-like material in the guide and would involve the transformation of information and concepts formerly in the guide to the motion picture mode with reinforcement in the laboratory activities.
