We are proud to announce the publication of the Student Misconceptions in STEM Database!
Under the tutelage of Dr. Teresa Secules, veteran School of Education faculty and integral member of the Piedmont College Woodrow Wilson Georgia Teaching Fellowship team, Fellows across all three cohorts worked to compile this tool to assist secondary STEM teachers.
You can access the tool using the link below.
This database consists of student misconceptions in science, mathematics, technology, and engineering fields. Each misconception is explained along with the correct scientific or mathematical understanding. Suggested instructional methods to dispel each misconception are included, as well as pertinent research and resources.
All these misconceptions have been encountered by Piedmont Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows during the course of their teaching in Georgia's public schools. The suggested instructional strategies and resources have been tried in their own classrooms.
