Reflection: Checks for Understanding Introduction to Electrostatics, Day 2 - Section 4: Hands-On Electrostatics Examples


I actually ended up using this as a formative assessment to see what the students gained from the notes and the jigsaw that we did in the previous lessons. At first I only meant for it to be some hands on examples for the students but I was able to see if as a group they were able to come up with the conductors and insulators. I collected the pages so I saw what the students came up with for the types of charging as well. It showed me how well the students actually did with the examples when they were in groups and that they were ready to move on to applying these concepts in different ways
