Story Telling in Physics

NCNAAPT November 3rd, 2012, Sierra College

There are many times during the year that I use the art of storytelling to captivate my students. Setting up a problem or sharing the history of a discovery can be as interesting as the phenomenn itself.

Powerpoint accompanying talk is available here.
Most curriculum resources are available here.  

I have use the book "The Pluto Files" by Neil deGrasse Tyson for several years now as part of my Astronomy curriculum. deGrasse Tyson is a great story teller. All of the material is available here:
