  1. STEM Resources

    Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) research refers to experiments conducted to address problems in those fields that can be tested using the scientific method. The scientific method is an inquiry process used to systematically study, investigate and to provide explanations for observed phenomenon in the natural world. This method is used by STEM professionals to answer questions they have about important world problems and usually includes carefully orchestrating a situation that allows them to observe, measure and test their ideas.

  3. Engaging Minds in Science and Math Classrooms: The Surprising Power of Joy

    Daily decisions about incorporating creativity, choice and autonomy - integral components of engagement - can build students' self-efficacy, keep them motivated and strengthen their identities as scientists and mathematicians. In this book, the authors show you how to apply the joyful learning framework to instruction in science and maths. Acknowledging that many students - particularly girls and students of colour - do not see themselves as mathematics and scientists, the authors provide a series of suggested activities that are aligned with standards and high expectations to engage and motivate all learners.

  9. How to . . . Ask the Right Questions

    If students are to discover, if students are to become better problem solvers, if students are to comprehend that their intuitive, everyday ways of explaining the world around them need to be adapted in order to better describe, predict, explain and control natural phenomena - they need to develop higher-order thinking skills. The kind of questions teachers ask influence the level of thinking operations students engage in. This booklet is devoted to providing some methods which you can use to analyse your questioning strategies and to suggest some techniques for developing variety in the kinds of questions you ask. To illustrate some of the classifications and concepts discussed, excerpts from a videotaped lesson to Year 3 students on magnetism appears at the end of this booklet.

  10. Differentiated Activities and Assessments Across the Australian Curriculum

    A significant advantage of working with the Australian Curriculum is the ability to modify existing content descriptions for broader curriculum application. Because they lend themselves so readily to differentiation, Australian Curriculum content descriptions can lead beyond lower-level test-prep answers to higher-level thinking and mastery of 21st century skills. Carolyn Coil's practical examples show educators how to use differentiated curriculum, instruction and assessment to promote individual student achievement. Within this framework, this book addresses over 50 topics in the Australian Curriculum learning areas of English, Mathematics, Humanities, Social Sciences and Science.
