Reviewing the professional development available before, during and after the module helps teachers deliver the topic with confidence. Printable teacher guides are just one way to help you prepare. They include hands-on activities, prior knowledge questions for use before the lesson and follow-up questions for use afterward.
Teacher Lessons are broken up into sections and provide content background and extensions specific to each module. Each teacher section includes a summary, common misconceptions and how to dispel them, as well as best practices. One best practice when teaching about Force that students can benefit from is helping them distinguish between a push and a pull. A great way to demonstrate this is with a game of catch: throwing the ball is a push, but catching it is a pull. Remind them that a push moves something away from them, while a pull moves something toward them.
