"Physics education research: Resources for middle school science teachers"

There's a wealth of resources here, in various forms. And despite the title, I think it is quite useful for almost all level of pre-college education.

I and my collaborators are preparing movie clips for use in the physics classroom. These clips have activities and lesson plans at this website:

You can download the clips from the website, or, if you're interested in getting the DVD, just enter your e-mail on the front page of the above site.
