This is the first of two field experience courses in which candidates teach at least one section of PSI Physics to students. Learners will develop a deeper understanding of PSI physics content and teaching methods. Content topics will be drawn from PHYS6601. Methods topics include dynamic, brief direct instruction; polling-facilitated formative assessment; social constructivism; and mastery-based summative assessment. (A waiver from the NJDOE allows all candidates enrolled in the Physics Endorsement program to teach this course.)

Prerequisites: PHYS6101 and PHYS6601, or Instructor Approval

Co-requisite: PHYS-6603
