  Description With the push for physics first, many middle school and high school instructors find themselves assigned to teach physical science and physics classes with little or no formal preparation in the content. Teaching Physics for the First Time is designed to provide a supply of lessons based on the learning cycle that are reliable and cost-effective. The labs, demonstrations, and activities emphasize the hands-on approach to learning physics concepts and include teaching strategies and address misconceptions students often have with respect to the concept. The workshop attendees will receive a copy of the book Teaching Physics for the First Time.
