Тема: Cultural Content Knowledge as a paradigm for physics curriculum

Аннотация: Physics curriculum usually presents subject matter as a discipline – sequentially organized and logically univocal. Such presentation usually leaves in shade the hierarchical structure of this knowledge and, in particular, the fact that it is comprised of a few fundamental theories based on different principles – a big picture of physics knowledge. As a discipline, each fundamental theory includes its fundamentals (nucleus) and various elements derived and possibly reduced to these fundamentals (body).  However, considering the scientific theory as a culture would presume inclusion of knowledge elements of the third type – periphery, which includes elements alternative to the nucleus.  The tripartite structure − nucleus-body-periphery − constitutes discipline-culture of physics. This model benefits understanding of several aspects of scientific knowledge upgrading the disciplinary knowledge to cultural content knowledge (CCK).  CCK brings to the fore the essential feature of science – the diachronic and synchronic scientific discourse sometimes lacking in modern teaching.  CCK clarifies the essential contribution of history and philosophy to physics curriculum.  Discipline-culture perspective may visualize scientific progress and typology of science students. (We have developed and tested three ways of providing CCK: discipline-culture curriculum, conceptual excursus and summative lecture.  I will briefly illustrate all three.
