Students are not empty slates. They enter our classrooms with experiences and beliefs that shape their readiness to learn. Most of the time prior knowledge is the foundation for new learning, but sometimes prior knowledge can actually impede it. This workshop will highlight research on prior knowledge, beliefs and misconceptions. Participants will generate strategies to capitalize on relevant prior knowledge and productively challenge student misconceptions.
