|Abstract: ||Teaching electrostatics is a challenging task due to its complexity and degree of abstraction. To help students meaningfully grasp the whole picture of the topic, this study (1) analyzed students’ learning difficulties in electrostatics, (2) developed demonstrations using a plasma globe and other equipment, (3) designed questions for students to participate in small group discussion, and (4) guided students to draw|
concept maps. The program has been implemented and modified by the author in Taiwan, involving both university and high school students, for three consecutive years. Both affective outcomes and academic performance were evaluated. The results suggest that the combination of theme demonstration, group discussion based on the worksheets, and concept mapping is effective in (1) clarifying the meanings of the terminology and concepts, (2) integrating related terms/theories into a global picture, and (3) engaging students’participation in the learning process.
