written by David E. Meltzer
For over 40 years, physicists have investigated ways to
improve the quality of physics teaching
Main Findings:
a) Instructional methods make a big difference
b) Curricular materials make a big difference
c) Teacher experience with methods and materials makes a
significant difference
d) Individual differences among teachers--apart from (a), (b),
and (c)--make a relatively small difference
Conclusion: To best improve physics teaching, assess
and strengthen teachers' use of and experience with
research-validated methods and materials
