This course was based on the NSTA Press publication Light: Stop Faking It! Finally
Understanding Science So You Can Teach It by Dr. William Robertson. The course
explored ray, wave, and particle models of light to explain the basics of reflection
and refraction, optical instruments, polarization, interference, and diffraction.
The instructor guided participants through easy-to-understand explanations and facilitated
discussions that enhanced teacher knowledge of common physical science concepts.
Participants contributed to asynchronous weekly discussions and completed suggested
reading assignments from the Light e-book, journal articles, and NSTA’s Nature of
Light SciPack and SciGuide.
