Misconceptions: What You Don't Know Can Help You Learn

Students begin making sense of the natural world long before their first science class and throughout school they accumulate ideas that can run contrary to accepted scientific ideas. Misconceptions are often hard to change because they make sense to the student. In this session we will explore how to identify students' science misconceptions through formative assessment and how to use the information to alter the instruction to achieve conceptual change.
