Course Overview: These will be collegial, hands-on laboratory-based
courses that are especially relevant to physics teachers in grades 7
through 12 and special education staff supporting students who are
learning physics concepts. These physics courses will help you
develop more competencies in physics and increase your comfort in
using technology resources in support of practices that align with
the National Research Council -A Framework for K-12 Science
Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas+ and
teaching concepts and content related to the Massachusetts state
frameworks standards in high school and middle school physics.
We will use a mix of traditional equipment and computer probe-ware to
gather and analyze data to facilitate -learning from nature.+ The
-minds-on+ pedagogy of Interactive Laboratory Experience (ILEs) and
- Interactive Lecture Demonstrations (ILDs), developed at The Center
- for Science and Mathematics Teaching at Tufts University, will be
- modeled throughout the institute. Teachers will leave this
- institute with classroom activities, written resources and an
- assortment of supplies and equipment to support a technology
- enhanced physics curriculum.
