How is electrical potential difference related to voltage and capacitance? This Question Exploration helps Ss define the role of voltage and capacitance in the movement of electrons (and other carriers) from higher to lower potential to complete a circuit's cycle.
Question Exploration Routines are instructional methods that teachers can use to help a diverse student population understand a body of content information by carefully answering a critical question to arrive at a main idea answer. Students taught using the content enhancement routines earned higher total test scores than did students taught using the lecture-discussion method.
Personally, I use the Content Enhancement Routines to figure out what I want to say and how I want to say it. It keeps my "Sage on the Stage" time limited to what fits onto 2-3 pages (about 45 minutes of directed class discussion).
This product includes both the completed strategic instruction, and the student guide blanked except for vocabulary, scaffolding questions, and graphics already filled in.

This Content Enhancement Routine is classroom tested to help students with the following Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in Science:
