Responsive Teaching and the Beginnings of Energy Ideas in Third Grade (1)
  Location: HC 3029
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.2
  Time: 2:15 PM -2:45 PM
  Author: Fred Goldberg, San Diego State University
  Co-Author(s): None
  Abstract: As part of a project aimed at describing children's progress in their science inquiry and in their development of energy (and other) ideas we have been working with grade 3-6 teachers to help them change their teaching from focusing on achieving specific district or state standards to focusing on responding to their students' ideas and reasoning. This change in focus has coincided with teachers seeing science inquiry as a pursuit of coherent, mechanistic accounts of phenomena (2). In this talk I will use some examples from third-grade classrooms to illustrate how this new focus has promoted the emergence of energy ideas.
