Previously known as the New Physics Teachers Workshop, this acclaimed workshop presents an introduction to the physics activities and curricular issues faced by newly assigned physics teachers. Taught by Dr. David Henry and colleagues, the content and pedagogy are designed for new physics teachers. During the workshop, the participants will:
Assess and develop their understanding of fundamental physics concepts
Become familiar with effective classroom activities and strategies that lead to successful physics teaching with the Physical science: Physics Core Curriculum.
Experience laboratory activities designed to help all physics students develop successful problem-solving skills.
Experience classroom instruction that effectively integrates group activities that build on prior knowledge.
Examine assessment instruments designed to help physics students prepare for the Regents Physics Exam.
Experience computer-enhanced instructional practices for developing science concepts elusive to other teaching strategies.
Practice implementing research-based instructional strategies.
