Abstract
Although physics is one of the core subjects of science and technology, many students find it to be a mentally exhausting subject with a dearth of fun that demands complex analysis for mastery (Tamang, 2004). So in offering quality physics education, a teacher needs to keep this complexity in mind when developing teaching strategies. This paper investigates the teaching strategies that can be employed to impart physics lessons effectively. Within a short span of time (six weeks of Teaching Practice), this research was carried out at Karnataka Middle Secondary School, Karnataka under K.E. Board with 24 class IX students. Data were gathered using three methods: observation, class tests and questionnaires. The findings were validated using diary notes, feedback from a critical friend, the researcher’s observation and data triangulation. The findings from these multiple sources reveal that students developed interest in learning physics after the intervention. More interestingly, their much improved score in the class test after intervention shows the propensity of how crucial a teacher’s way of teaching is in imparting physics lessons effectively. The improvement in students‟ physics performance overwhelmed our colleagues and critical friend and they would like to model our strategies in their future prospects of teaching physics.
