Building a culturally inclusive/response physics curriculum

Thursday, March 23 • 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - A404

STRAND: Student Learning and Inclusion

Show Details

During this session, attendees will learn the results of a literature review that focused on the culturally inclusive/responsive pedagogies that are being used in science classrooms. Everyone will then be able to share their experiences with these pedagogies or suggest alternative methods.

After this session, attendees should better understand how to incorporate culturally responsive/inclusive pedagogies in a science classroom.

STRAND: Student Learning and Inclusion

Show Details

Inspired by recent space launches? Wondering how to capture the excitement with your students? Join us to learn how we use rocketry and avionics to teach data analysis and system engineering. This course allows exploration of Newton’s 2nd Law through guided modules that develop knowledge and skills.

Educators will explore the phenomena of rocketry through a hands-on activity focused on hardware and flight. They will then formulate how predictive and actual data tell the whole story of the rocket's flight. The session culminates with the supports to make rocketry accessible in their classroom.
