Abstract

The teaching of electricity is described by six teachers at the K-12 grade levels. Their understanding of electricity concepts and their methods of instruction are explored. A list of research based best practices is used to analyze the methods of instruction used by the participants. Recommendations are suggested for the improvement of teaching electricity at the K-12 grade levels.
