Physics can be taught with a total project based learning approach and have high test scores. Teacher Ben Owens demonstrates this every day. High poverty and high needs students don’t stop him. He expects 100% engagement from every student every day (and gets it.) Listen Now
Even more exciting is how the girls in his class enjoy physics. (Some of them recently won a “punkin’ chunkin’ contest” in his local Appalachian mountain community.) Hear the @engineerteacher tell his fantastic story of learning, engagement and high achievement.
