  2. Discovery Engineering in Biology: Case Studies for Grades 6–12

    Show your students how amazing it can be to just ‘see what will happen’ when they blend biology, engineering and serendipity. Focusing on innovations sparked by accidental or unexpected observations, the case studies in this resource are a lively way to integrate engineering and experimentation into your biology classes. Middle and high school students will learn fundamental science processes while using their natural curiosity to explore ideas for new applications and products. They’ll also find out that small, plant-eating mammals called pikas helped scientists find new ways to survive extreme weather events and that algae can be used as airplane fuel.

  3. Transform Your 6-12 Math Class: Digital Age Tools to Spark Learning

    Instead of drill-and-practice apps and worksheets, what if technology enabled exploration of mathematics concepts? Instead of screens for disconnected individual learning, what if technology fostered mathematical discourse and collaboration? Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching mathematics, what if we used technology to differentiate to meet students’ diverse needs? Technology has the power to support the teaching and learning of mathematics content at all grade levels, but the presence of technology is insufficient unless it’s paired with effective teaching practices and meaningful content. This book poses and unpacks the above questions and many more, with detailed classroom examples to illustrate practical strategies for integrating technology in the 6-12 classroom.

  4. Personalized Reading: Digital Strategies and Tools to Support All Learners

    Classrooms today include a diversity of readers, and teachers are called upon to meet the needs of all learners. In particular, they must help students think critically and communicate effectively using visual, print and digital text. Personalized Reading highlights four different types of readers - the struggling reader, the reluctant reader, English learners and advanced readers - and presents ways to use technology tools to accommodate their different reading styles. The strategies and classroom-ready ideas in this book will help secondary educators incorporate technology to promote reading, critical thinking and digital literacy.

  5. NOW Classrooms, Grades 9-12: Lessons for Enhancing Teaching and Learning Through Technology

    In NOW Classrooms, Grades 9-12: Lessons for Enhancing Teaching and Learning Through Technology, the authors stress that real transformational school change focuses on robust teaching and learning, not the ever-evolving devices that may enhance that change. This book presents practical, classroom tested lessons that Years 9-12 teachers and instructional coaches can use to prime students to actively learn and solve real-world problems. Sets of topical lessons progressively increase in depth and complexity for readers to choose from based on students' needs. Using these lessons, grounded in the vital four C skills (communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity), teachers can connect technology to key content-area outcomes and prepare students to succeed in the 21st century.

  6. Construction Materials: STEM Road Map for High School

    What if you could challenge your high school students to gain an understanding of the feats of engineering required to build high-rise buildings - and maybe even improve them? Construction Materials outlines a journey that will steer your students toward authentic problem-solving while grounding them in integrated STEM disciplines. The series is designed to meet the growing need to infuse real-world learning into F-12 classrooms. This book is an interdisciplinary module that uses project-and problem-based learning. It gives students an inside look at the complex technologies and science behind the buildings they may take for granted. They'll examine micro- and macro-properties of construction materials, particularly those of high-rise buildings, through a unit divided into three sections.

  7. Media Literacy in the F-12, Updated and Expanded Second Edition

    Today's average youth spends over 10 hours a day consuming media. Aided by technology, young people can instantly share and engage with media messages to find answers, get directions, shop or connect with friends. But access alone doesn't lead to critical thinking. Media are texts, designed to be read, analysed, deconstructed and reconstructed. Understanding how to interpret advertising messages, check for bias or avoid stereotyping are among the skills students need to become knowledgeable consumers and producers of media. This book helps educators understand the importance of teaching media literacy and gives them the tools needed to bring this form of literacy into the classroom.

  8. More Everyday Engineering: Putting the E in STEM Teaching and Learning

    What makes a windup toy get up and go? How does an earbud operate? And why does the line you're waiting in always seem the slowest? This book is an ideal resource for sparking students' interest in the marvels of engineering behind seemingly simple items and events. Thirteen activities focus on three aspects of engineering: designing and building, reverse-engineering to learn how something works and constructing and testing models.

  10. STEM Student Research Handbook

    The STEM Student Research Handbook outlines the various stages of large-scale research projects, enabling teachers to coach their students through the research process. This volume provides enough detail to embolden all teachers to support science, technology, engineering and mathematics student-researchers through the experimental process. Early chapters help students conceive and implement their projects, while later chapters on descriptive and inferential statistics, as well as graphical representations, help them correctly interpret their data. Final chapters enable students to effectively communicate their results by writing and documenting a STEM research essay, as well as by preparing for oral and poster presentations.
