Identifying misconceptions is part of good assessment - knowing what your students know is a critical step in providing opportunities for all students to learn science.
Linda

Good morning, Linda Mintier from West Oak Intemediate School in Mundelein, IL.

These types of probes are effective formative assessment tools when students get a chance to discuss, experience feedback, or engage in new sense-making.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
41:55
Thanks for sharing Juliann! That's a great strategy for using formative assessment to gain an understanding of our students' misconceptions.
JoAnn

Misconceptions about Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion was always a big barrier for students.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
46:34
Make sure to type in your questions to the Q&A - we’ll answer as many as we can at the end of the webinar!
Sarah
46:53
Mine is that when I’ve taught seasons in the past, my students always connected hotter seasons as a result of being closer to the sun, but it’s actually caused by the amount of direct vs. indirect sunlight on that area. We do a lot of hands-on activities to show that direct and indirect light and students find that the heat can also be caused by more direct light, not just getting closer to the light source.
Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
47:35
Misconceptions about the 3rd Law comes from using the phrase “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction”
Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
47:55
@Syed it’s a classic!
Lisa
48:23
Good morning! Lisa Jeff from Esmond School Chicago. I believe that ¨Vernacular & Conceptual Misconceptions "are some of the key reasons my students struggle with learning. Some are so deeply rooted, it is hard to get students to let go of the misconception. The main one I have is the students believe the sun moves, because it appears to move in the sky.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
48:45
I agree @Sarah - the reason for the seasons was always a big misconception for my 8th graders!
Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
48:49
@Lisa - excellent example
Kevin
50:02
@Lauren-Yes! The Earth must be closer to the sun when it is summer!
Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
50:38
Without language, science isn’t possible - it’s how we pass down information and avoid having to relearn from scratch… but then language can create barriers. NGSS promotes engaging with concepts through experiences before trying to name what’s happening.
Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
52:01
Multiple choice is an effective mechanism for accessing misconceptions

If you have questions for Will about anything he’s shared or about misconceptions in general, submit those using the Q&A feature in your Zoom toolbar.

Understanding the misconceptions prior to teaching a lesson, definitely help me to prepare for some of the fascinating responses my first graders give during an exploration.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
59:20
@DJemison1 - Yes! It can definitely help you better prepare for your units. I always LOVED hearing the responses my students gave prior to learning.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
01:00:26
@Beverly - that is a GREAT strategy and can be super useful when planning units!
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
01:00:55
If you'd like to share your thoughts with the whole group (vs. just us MSI folks), make sure to change your audience from "all panelists" to "all panelists and attendees" in the chat so that everyone can see you response!
Beverly
01:01:56
I try to use questions with my kindergartners to help me understand their prior knowledge of the topic.
Nicole
01:03:34
I could introduce more questioning, multiple choice answers, and activities to help them confront their ideas.
Vasiliki
01:04:04
Open ended questions
latoshiamaddox
01:04:22
Using more questioning and small group discussions to think about our answers
Pixel 2
01:04:38
I like the idea of letting students see their answers (without names) and them being able to discuss it. gonna use that.
Sarah
01:04:39
Having whole-class discussions has been very beneficial to tackle misconceptions. After doing a few lessons with multiple models and learning opportunities, I let students assess their original probe answer, change if they have reasoning, and then students get in groups to build an argument and present it to the other students with different answers to the probe. No one knows the correct answer so they have to provide evidence and reasoning to try to convince their classmates that their probe answer is the BEST option.
DJemison1
01:04:53
With young students I would use diagrams/drawings to check for understanding. Questioning. Models.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
01:05:02
Even the simple "why do you think that" can really help students begin to think more deeply about why they think the way that they do!
Allison
01:05:16
I think I need to focus on regularly returning to our misconceptions and not missing opportunities to look back at how far our understandings have come.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
01:06:22
These are all fantastic ideas! Thanks for sharing your expertise everyone :)
Ramesh
01:06:54
Projects, field trips, experiments, and student teacher approach like strategies are helping me to resolve better understanding the concepts among my students
Nicole
01:07:20
I agree @Allison. I need to be better at coming back to review how far they have come with a pre/post test.
Lauren Slanker (MSI)
01:07:23
Stay tuned for our Q&A, after which we will explain how IL teachers can receive ISBE hours when we conclude at 10:30 :)
Maggie
01:10:50
Google Forms has worked very well for myself to gather student data, but it does require very well worded assessment questions
Brandon
01:11:51
with remote learning, I will be trying to use Flipgrid for these misconceptions, understanding and sharing
Laura
01:14:30
@Brandon Flipgrid is a great way to do that during remote learning. I did that for my remote Summer Science camp and even my shy kids were talking.
Kyle Kauffman (MSI)
01:15:18
Several questions related to teaching science topics that are controversial or ones that conflict with “other ways of knowing” or beliefs… here’s a short resource http://stemteachingtools.org/assets/landscapes/STEM-Teaching-Tool-44-Teaching-Controversial-Science-Topics.pdf
