  2. Novel Engineering, K–8: An Integrated Approach to Engineering and Literacy

    Novel engineering, K–8 shows how your students can work through engineering design challenges inspired by a broad range of literature – novels and short stories, biographies and histories, or even picture books. By way of introduction, the book offers clear conceptual background and practical advice on how the approach works: Your students pull information from literature to identify a problem. Then, using details from the story or text, they go through an engineering design process to develop functional solutions for their ‘clients’ – the book’s characters. To support your efforts and bring the concept to life, the book gives you five in-depth case studies featuring the use of novels, a biography and a nonfiction historical text.
