The Darkness of Space: A Teaching Strategy
Yurumezoglu, Kemal; Oguz, Ayse
Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, v46 n4 p15-17 Win 2010
This study examines the process by which a teacher may be able to answer a question asked in the classroom by using a scientific approach and a simple activity. This article examines a discussion of the question "Is space light or dark?" Priority in the discussion has been given to determining students' preconceptions about the interaction of light and matter. After this discussion, a classroom activity simulating the phenomenon of space helps students answer the questions they have posed. (Contains 4 figures.)
