Virtual Images – Reflections
The Virtual Image is my place to write reflections on teaching. I’ve been teaching for over 17 years, mostly physics. I’ve used Active Physics and Modeling and I teach AP Physics C (both Mechanics and Electricity and Magnetism). I’ve taken the Matter & Interactions course for teachers from Bruce Sherwood, attended my first AAPT meeting in Winter of 1992, and been a member of AAPT since 1990. I try to encourage critical thinking, use technology, integrate cooperative learning, foster literacy, and keep up with the paperwork. In between, I hope to reflect regularly on what I am doing, and I hope some of my colleagues across the country will comment and make suggestions.
One of the major lessons I have learned as a teacher is that there is always more to learn. I hope this blog will be another learning opportunity.
