ght be a warning of things to come.............
One important issue was the course for elementary school teachers. T=
type of course should be completely PER oriented. There is some exce=
material written at Dickinson College by Priscilla Laws' collaborator=
can server as the basis for an elementary school teacher course in ph=
science. Such a course needs to address the same issues as a convent=
research based physics course, but at a lower level. It should also =
designed to promote an increase in the Piagetian level, especially
proportional reasoning, control of variable, two variable reasoning, =
conservation reasoning. There are certainly other good materials ava=
but the anonymous poster did not seem to show any awareness of this.
If this is a genuine post by someone at the school in question, my sy=
is not that high. They apparently have not tried to implement resear=
based strategies to teach the students.
