Integrative Strategy for Effective Teaching of Alternating Circuits in Secondary School Physics: A Guide to Physics Teachers
One of the reasons advanced for the low enrolment and achievement of students in Physics at both secondary and post-secondary schools is poor teaching strategies used by teachers of Physics particularly in teaching Physics concepts classified by students as being difficult. In this paper, integrative strategy for effective teaching of a difficult concept, alternating circuits in secondary school Physics to enhance students’ achievement in the subject is proposed. The paper also outlines the principles governing integrative teaching approach. The application of the strategy proposed in teaching some sub-themes under alternating circuits to guide both teachers and students is shown.
