Reflection: Lesson Planning May the Force Be With You! - Section 4: Mid-Workshop Mini Lesson


It is important, sometimes, to know your lesson so well, along with your class's abilities, to know when you should break and introduce the next section. In the past, I would explain all of the steps at once and spend the majority of the session running around redirecting students. 

Now, I allow the students to complete part of the session, regather to analyze findings, and then teach the next part. The students appreciate this, and I find it frees me up to have more content conversations, rather than refocusing the students.

May the Force Be With You!

Unit 8: Magnets
Lesson 4 of 7

Objective: Students will be able to determine how to interrupt the force of magnetism and measure the force of magnetism.

Big Idea: This lesson is due to a student's question about how the force of his magnet was breaking when he moved his arm quickly. The motivation today is high because it is a student's idea.
