Wood’s model provided, the increase among second grade students intermediate, and Wood’s model ensures that the student works on individually and collectively so the student will be effective and positive with the teacher and with his fellow students.
Wood’s Model: Origins of Wood’s Model
The idea of this model was developed by Robin Wood’s Since he was teaching his child at home where he was impressed how the kids learn the basic skills in reading and writing, especially in their attempts to interpret the natural world. This admiration was Crystallized after several years when he became a teacher of science and found variation in interpretations of his students totaling (50) pupils from the fifth grade of the natural world around them. So, his desire to understand how children learn science was renewed when he met (Richard Thorley) in 1991 Assistant professor in the physics education of specialist, who ran a workshop under the supervision of the University of (Rochester) about the science of changing the concept and produced. The discussed results for the selection of a topic in electrical questions and promising for the detection of the child's innate learning theories about science such as one priming bulbs or cut one wire of an electrical circuit and teaching was in a small group according to the following steps:
(1) The pupils predict the phenomenon.(2) Make experiences on the basis of their predictions and note the results. (3) If their theories constricted with empirical evidence students must help to move from incorrect theories to the correct scientific explanation.
Phases of Wood’s Model
Wood’s designed teaching made and implemented in physics chemistry laboratory .Its aim was to help learners to abandon their Incorrect concepts .The work is done in small groups and includes the following stages:
(1) Prediction:learners are asked to predict the outcome of experiments.(2) Observing:learners are Observing the through scientific experiment and record observations and reach to the results. (3) Explanation:learners are asked to explain the results in light of previous theories and ideas and then to reach a proper scientific explanation.
