Heat and Temperature: A Teaching Module. Occasional Paper No. 93.
Hollon, Robert E.; Anderson, Charles W.
Designed to address major conceptual problems associated with heat and temperature, this module can be used with high school students or college nonscience majors including those in elementary education. The materials offer guidance to teachers in diagnosing student deficiencies, in creating dissatisfaction with misconceptions, and in providing opportunities for application and practice. This module contains: (1) an introductory section (discussing the misconceptions related to heat and temperature and how to use the module to overcome these barriers); (2) diagnostic test and commentary (designed to be used as a pretest and/or posttest); (3) materials for lecture or discussion (consisting of a series of copy-ready masters for use as overhead transparencies and student handouts on the topics of heat transfer, states and phases of matter and methods of heat transfer); (4) laboratory activities/demonstrations (including lessons on heat and temperature, heat capacity, and heat transfer through radiation); and (5) problem sets and commentary (presenting problems dealing with heat and temperature and methods of heat transfer).
