  2. The Changing Earth: STEM Road Map for Middle School, Grade 8

    The changing earth outlines a journey that will steer your students towards authentic problem-solving while grounding them in integrated STEM disciplines. Like the other volumes in the series, this book is designed to meet the growing need to infuse real-world learning into F–12 classrooms. This interdisciplinary, six-lesson module uses project- and problem-based learning to introduce the powerful idea that Earth is shaped by ongoing geologic processes that can alter our landscape in a short time. The module also helps students appreciate the nature and process of science, including the roles of evidence, conjecture and modelling. Students will learn about the rock cycle, including how its driven by the Sun’s energy and heat from Earth’s core.

  5. 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.
