Trout, Joseph Jude; Murphy, Casey; Vukicevich, Morgan – Physics Teacher, 2019
Active learning techniques are generally considered to be any classroom activities in which students become an active participant in learning, instead of a passive listener to a lecture. Service learning activities are generally experiential (real life) and reflective problem-based learning activities in which students enrolled in an academic…

Okcu, Betül; Sozbilir, Mustafa – Physics Teacher, 2019
The aim of this study was to provide an effective teaching of the transformation of electrical energy into light energy to eighth-grade middle school students with visual impairment. The needs of these students were identified prior to designing the material. Their general and special needs were also taken into account. A case study approach was…

Merhar, Vida Kariž; Capuder, Rok; Maroševic, Timotej; Artac, Sonja; Mozer, Alenka; Štekovic, Maja – Physics Teacher, 2016
In the school year 2012-2013 about 50 students (Fig. 1), managed by mentors (teachers from the middle school Gimnazija Vic in Ljubljana, Slovenia) created an atmospheric probe and launched it into an altitude of more than 30 km above Earth's surface. The aim of this "space expedition" was to take pictures of Earth and to measure how air…

Hagedorn, Eric A. – Physics Teacher, 2006
For several years physics faculty at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) have taught physics to pre-service elementary and middle school teachers in an unusual location: the local elementary school! The participating pre-service elementary and middle school teachers are typically in their last semester and are fully immersed in their…

Dreon, Oliver, Jr. – Physics Teacher, 2005
Physics First has gained momentum across the country. Providing a radically different paradigm to teaching science at the high school level, the Physics First movement inverts the traditional science sequence by teaching physics to ninth grade students. One of the benefits of this change, supporters claim, is that it provides a foundation to teach…
