S.T.E.A.M. : Curriculum Integration Including Arts & Design


This course meets OSPI’s STEM requirements

S.T.E.A.M. is an educational approach towards learning that integrates two or more areas of study Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math-as entry points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. This course addresses how to blend these content areas to enhance learning across the curriculum. Studies of differentiated instruction show that S.T.E.A.M. pushes curriculum forward providing momentum that may result in students taking thoughtful risks, engaging in experiential learning, persisting in problem-solving, embracing collaboration, and exploring the creative process.

With S.T.E.A.M. lessons, students begin to dabble and experiment as innovators, peer educators, classroom leaders, and 21st-century learners. Participants will design a S.T.E.A.M. curriculum

for their particular discipline, locate and adapt available cross-curricular lessons, and seek content area resources that will provide that extra push for S.T.E.A.M. thinking.

S.T.E.A.M. curriculum provides creativity, supports problem-solving, activates the memory system and connects to analytical skills. This course is an excellent resource for a collaborative group or staff book study. Become the S.T.E.A.M. leader who recognizes and discovers ways in which art-related skills support, complement and enhance skills that students need to become successful across the core-curriculum. Add a little S.T.E.A.M. to your curriculum witness your student's "blasting off" towards their learning success.  Appropriate for grades K-12. Used Amazon text about $22.

When mathematics is taught with real-world lessons, students develop long-term conceptual understanding. The challenge for K-8 teachers is where and how to integrate these lessons. The three pedagogical practices of Problem-based learning, Project-based learning and Inquiry around five foundational skills for mathematics are key concepts. You will learn to create tasks rooted in a real-life connection to these concepts. Research suggests that a strong foundation in these areas is key for math success. $5 material fee due to instructor after registration
