Thinking about actions to take(Suggestions)



There's a good chance you could improve your teaching if you were to:

Try these

  • thinking about electrical loops
  • emphasising the simultaneous movement of charge, everywhere in the loop
  • using model to mean a toolkit for thinking with that is capable of generating predictions
  • reasoning about electrical loops as complete systems
  • Teacher Tip: Work through the Physics Narrative to find these lines of thinking worked out and then look in the Teaching Approaches for some examples of activities.

    Avoid these

  • not challenging imprecise language, reasoning, diagramming
  • using sequential models, such as donation models
  • electrical energy
  • Teacher Tip: These difficulties are distilled from: the research findings; the practice of well-connected teachers with expertise; issues intrinsic to representing the physics well.
