Edward Redish, Department of Physics


Over the past few years, a number of curricula have been developed in the USA that are based on the constructivist model of student thinking and learning and which have evolved using the research/curriculum reform/instruction cycle. This online article is the second part in a two part discussion of several models of instruction developed for physics courses. The article outlines full studio models, discovery labs, lecture based models, and recitation based models. Users can also link to Part one of the discussion. The article is part of Reddish (1996) contrasts IE classroom with traditional classrooms and gives several examples of Interactive Engagment (IE) techniques used in Physics courses.
