Abstract

Since teachers have a busy schedule, several studies show that teachers have difficulty in incorporating students’ pre-existing knowledge in their courses. For this reason, to get teachers to comprehend how to incorporate students’ pre-existing knowledge in their courses, sample teaching design should be illustrated. The aim of this study is to illustrate a 5E model on incorporating in students’ pre-existing knowledge using computer simulations, analogy and worksheet based on the assumption that using different learning methods together may be more effective in eliminating students’ misconceptions completely. Because the study is a hypothetical paper, to investigate applicability of presented teaching design, further research should be undertaken.
