Chapters 6–9 share model lessons for putting the explore-before-explain mindset into practice using either a POE (Predict, Observe, and Explain) or 5E (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate) instructional sequence. In this chapter, students explore phenomena related to understanding the question “Why do the lights turn on when we flip the switch?” Electricity is an abstract phenomenon that students interact with every day. The misconceptions addressed by this lesson are nothing new and have been targeted by curriculum materials. Teacher background information, standards, and references are provided. This book selection also includes the Table of Contents, Foreword, Acknowledgments, About the Author, Introduction, and Index..
