Description

Designing for Discourse and Sensemaking in Physics Class

Led by​: Kelly O'Shea and Yiqing Shen

This week-long workshop will give teachers a chance to investigate and practice several tools that can be used in any physics classroom to promote, support, and facilitate discourse between students and sensemaking by students. Participants will also get the chance to extend each activity and design materials for use in their own classrooms.


The topics and activities during the week will include:

  • turning paper word problems into mini lab practicum activities that can be interactive group experiences

  • card sorts

  • whiteboarding activities and techniques to facilitate student-to-student discussions

  • solving kinematics and force problems graphically

  • paradigm experiments for starting units


The activities in this workshop work well with the Modeling Instruction pedagogy, but they could fit into any physics class, and no previous training in Modeling Instruction is necessary for attending this workshop.


Because of the focus on design, the ideal participants could be either individual physics teachers or teams of teachers who work together.


Schedule and Location:

The workshop will run for 1 week July 16 - July 20, 2018. The workshop sessions will be from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm on Monday - Thursday and Friday 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Location: Elisabeth Irwin High School (LREI) is location at 40 Charlton St New York, NY 10014). It is 1 block from the Houston Street stop of the #1 subway.


*Note, this workshop requires a minimum number of participants. In the event there are not enough participants, the workshop may be cancelled, and all tuition would be refunded.

Please note: We take photographs and record video of our workshops in order to publicize a positive image of science teaching, and of STEMteachersNYC - a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. If you register, you are agreeing to be photographed and to have your voice and image video-recorded. You are also agreeing to relinquish all your rights to the photographs and video recordings.

If you do not wish to be photographed or video-recorded - you must inform us at check-in. We will take one photograph of your face so that we can erase your image if we happen to catch it by chance during the workshop, and we will do our best to avoid you. We would also appreciate your cooperation in positioning yourself at the edge of the group so as to help us avoid you.
