Elementary teachers will become credentialed as Project Lead The Way Launch Teachers. Develop the conceptual and instructional understanding you’ll need to guide students as they engage in cross-disciplinary activities and develop skills related to problem-solving, critical and creative thinking, collaboration, and perseverance.
Join us on Wednesday, May 20, 2020, starting at 7:00 pm ET to explore interactive reading strategies to engage students that connect children’s books to the practices of science and engineering. These strategies are easy to do at home or with a virtual class! Recommendations for books that incorporate the practices, help to illustrate STEM-like thinking, and connect science to literacy will be included.
We have added additional distance learning curricular resources and webinars. The curriculum development and webinars are provided by the Portland Metro STEM Partnership and made possible by a generous STEM Innovation grant from the Oregon Department of Education and the STEM Investment Council.
Creating student engagement with STEM learning is more challenging than ever as educators transition to distance learning.
In this edWebinar, Kirstin Harrington, EdTech Coach from Flagler County Schools, will discuss how she is supporting teachers and students with STEM activities to keep students learning and engaged at home.
Since time immemorial, engineering has been a feat perfected by by the plant and animal relatives throughout our traditional homelands. They served as our teachers in developing tools, structures, and protocols allowing us to thrive then, now, and, with our responsibilities fulfilled, into the future. This webinar will provide insight into the genius of our ancestors with classroom activities discussed and appropriate approaches to incorporating them.
Description: English learners (ELs) bring extensive linguistic, cultural, and disciplinary knowledge and resources to STEM education. However, they often lack opportunities to engage with challenging disciplinary practices and content in STEM subjects.
