I was off campus today at the annual AP Science Symposium while my AP Physics 2 student finished their circuits exam. I am fortunate that a nearby high school hosts an annual AP Science Symposium. This year, nearly 30 AP Physics teachers attended. It is fantastic to spend the day asking questions, listening, and sharing with peers from other high schools. I was pleasantly surprised at how interested and receptive the other AP physics teachers were to Modeling Instruction (historically the philosophy of these teachers hasn’t aligned much with Modeling Instruction). I think the new AP Physics 1/2 courses and their emphasis on deep conceptual understanding has created this opportunity. My colleague shared his recent experience administering a goalless lab practicum, which is an idea I have to try!
