<ul><li> Slide 1 </li> <li> Teacher Centered Instruction vs. Student Centered Instruction </li> <li> Slide 2 </li> <li> Sage on the Stage: Teacher is the primary conduit of information. Ex: Lecture Guide on the Side: Teacher facilitates student experiences with content. </li> <li> Slide 3 </li> <li> Teacher-Centered Advantages Teacher controls content, time, activity A lot of material can be covered Easy to plan Disadvantages Inefficient for many learners Low motivation Limited opportunities to check progress </li> <li> Slide 4 </li> <li> Student-Centered Advantages Tends to be more motivational Provides more opportunities to experience content Disadvantages Lack of teacher control/organization Time &amp; resource dependent </li> <li> Slide 5 </li> <li> Pendulums Prominent position in the history of mathematics and science What have pendulums been used for? In classrooms, pendulums are a common activity for teaching about the control of variables. </li> <li> Slide 6 </li> <li> Pendulums Make a pendulum What variables could students explore with a pendulum? What issues would students have to work through? </li> <li> Slide 7 </li> <li> Pendulums What variables could students explore with a pendulum? Period Length Weight Angle of release What issues would students have to work through? Holding the point of swing steady Measuring the period Manipulating multiple variables simultaneously </li> <li> Slide 8 </li> <li> Task Create 2 informal plans for instruction Teacher-centered lesson Student-centered lesson Lesson Focus: Pendulums Teaching objective: TSSBAT list two everyday items that make use of pendulums. TSSBAT identify the variables which affect the period of a pendulum. TSSBAT design an experiment to test for the effects of multiple variables on a system. </li> <li> Slide 9 </li> <li> http://monet.physik.unibas.ch/~elmer/pendulum/ http://www.walter-fendt.de/ph11e/pendulum.htm http://www.calacademy.org/products/pendulum/ </li> </ul>
