Five one-semester Courses at SDSU for LSMs have been modified by including specific activities connecting student learning with the NGSS
  • Natural Sciences 100
    • Intro level, predominantly LSM, large class environment
  • Geology 104
    • Intro level, about half LSM, large class environment
  • Geology 412
    • Upper division, all LSM, small class environment
  • Physics 412
      • Upper division, all LSM, large class environment
  • Teacher Education 211B
    • Upper division, LSM, small class environment
learning physics
Learning Physics
  • Throughout the curriculum students are engaged in the practices of science and engineering: in-class hands-on activities with materials and videos of experiments and demonstrations
  • The goal is for students to see that the core ideas of science emerge from engagement in the practices
  • Using Calibrated Peer Review program for online writing and evaluating of scientific explanations
  • Students assigned homework that explicitly connects their own learning with the NGSS practices, core ideas and crosscutting concepts
example from unit 2 developing model for static electricity
Example from Unit 2: Developing Model for Static Electricity
  • In first lesson, groups perform experiments with tape and various objects to conclude that electricallycharged objects attract all materials, both metals and non-metals

Developing Model for Static Electricity
  • In successive lessons, students observe series of videos showing various static electric phenomena …

… and use the evidence to revise their models

example can an object be charged without directly touching it
Example: Can an object be charged without directly touching it?
  • Consider two ‘electroscopes’ with different ‘bodies’ (metal and plastic). Uncharged tinsel hangs from each end.

Metal Soda Can

Plastic Water Bottle

  • Watch video where positively charged acrylic sheet is touched to ‘base’ end of soda can and bottle.

Tinsel sticks out

Tinsel still hangs straight down

After touching bases with positively (+) charged acrylic sheet

Before touching bases with positively (+) charged acrylic sheet

  • Would tinsel on other end of each now be charged? What evidence would suggest this? If charged, would it be + or - ?
  • Develop model to explain these results, take a photo, and e-mail to instructor.
slide14

Several other groups had a model similar to this

  • During class students compare and critique the two representative models

  • Practices
    • Developing and using models
    • Analyzing and interpreting data
    • Engaging in argument from evidence
  • Core Ideas
    • Forces and interactions
  • Crosscutting Concepts
    • Cause and Effect: mechanism and explanation
plans for curriculum development
Plans for Curriculum Development*
  • Develop six modules
    • Five covering all the physical science core ideas, science and engineering practices, and many crosscutting connections
    • One focusing on Learning about Learning(students’ learning, children’s learning, nature of science, connections to NGSS, CCSS-M and CCSS-ELA)
  • Three versions of each module
    • Small class
    • Large class
    • Online
  • Implementation begins Fall 2015
