Kids Say the Darndest Things: Conceptual Change Theory in Science Class

David Lustick, UMass Lowell

During this interactive session, we will explore students' conceptions
about natural phenomenon and why they believe such non-scientific
ideas. We will then discuss how such information from a conceptual
change perspective can increase teacher effectiveness at fostering
learning. Participants are encouraged to share stories from the
classroom that illustrate children's misconceptions and the range of
ways that were used to addressed the challenge.

STEM seminars are held at 4PM on the first and third Tuesdays of each
month during the academic year in Hasbrouck 138. Everyone is welcome; no
reservations are needed, and there is no charge.

Parking is available in the Campus Center Garage.
