Teaching about Energy Through a Spiral Curriculum: Guiding Principles.
Trumper, Ricardo
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v12 n1 p66-75 Fall 1996
Conventional science instruction often fails to address or change students' misconceptions about physical phenomena. Students stubbornly cling to anthropocentric, causal, and product conceptions about energy. This article explores scientific and pedagogical arguments favoring development of a spiral curriculum for teaching energy in (Israeli) senior high school physics courses, especially in mechanics units.
