We will explore misconceptions held by students and how we can use some practical activities to overcome these. By the end of this session you will know what the most common misconceptions are and some ways to address these. In this session, we will reflect on the newly released videos, covering one or more key aspects of the recordings – click here to view them.
This workshop will explore further the concepts and approaches introduced by the four videos:
- Charge and Static (11-14)
- Using models to explain simple circuits (11-14)
- Exploring circuits practically (11-14)
- What is voltage? (11-16)
It would be beneficial if you can watch these videos or at least some of them before the workshop. We will be exploring approaches to introducing charge, current, resistance and potential difference to KS3 pupils. We will use a range of models, some shown in the videos plus others.
We are here to help you, so please bring along any concerns or queries you have about teaching KS3 electricity.
