Physics Is Phun When It’s Personalized (ep. 26)

Personalized physics! Ben Powers has transformed his classroom, his lessons, and his class culture in his physics courses at Westside High School to adopt a personalized approach that empowers learners with opportunities to design their own labs, to experiment¬†with different materials, and to both metacognitively and creatively engage in the coursework on a level that is unique to the individual’s interest and learner preference. This episode shares three¬†specific examples of these personalized practices in action in the classroom, and the application insights that Ben shares have their applicability across a variety of content areas.
