This PLC includes Introductory Physics and Engineering teachers from Newton North and Newton South high schools. The four teachers have been participating in a National Science Foundation funded professional development project designed to help teachers infuse engineering content and practices into their physics instruction as is required by the Next Generation Science Standards.
During year one of the project, two of the teachers developed and implemented a project called Lights Out! This series of videos documents the PLC's work to revise this project and implement it in year two.
High School Planning
The PLC reviews the assignment and student work from last school year. They use a loose Tuning Protocol to provide feedback on the project and brainstorm ideas for revision.
