Reflection: Pre-Tests Magnetism: A Review - Section 1: Introduction


I know that the 2nd grade teachers at my school teach a magnet unit, and so it was tempting to skip over all of the state standards I have on magnetism, such as opposite poles attracting and similar poles repelling.  However, the data from my Electricity and Magnetism Pretest indicated that this was one of the greatest areas of student need.  Knowing that they had at least been exposed to this in the past made me comfortable reviewing these ideas quickly, and I could hear from their discussions that they were remembering important points as we went along.
