  2. STEM Education Now More Than Ever

    Rodger W. Bybee's 2012 book The Case for STEM Education was a call to confront pressing challenges and opportunities in science classrooms. This new book is a call to action at a time when the integrity of STEM disciplines is under assault. Now more than ever, he writes, society needs to recognise the place of STEM education in the cultural, political and ethical life of students as future citizens. But to make this possible, science educators must address important questions that will guide the development of their programs and practices throughout the 21st century. STEM Education Now More Than Ever is Bybee's positive and constructive response for the STEM education community as it navigates these unconventional and uncertain years.

  5. The Young Artist as Scientist: What Can Leonardo Teach Us?

    This is the first in-depth look at the important connections between the arts and science specifically for early childhood education (Preschool-Year 3). Highlighting their many commonalities such as the processes involved in creative problem-solving, the author draws on what we can learn from Leonardo da Vinci as the supreme artist-scientist. Every chapter begins with a vignette of Leonardo and relates his thinking to the development of children's ideas in the arts and STEM (STEAM). This fresh look at the interdisciplinary connections of the arts and science offers early childhood teachers and administrators a spectrum of tools for connecting the creative arts (art, movement, drama and music) to the STEM movement, 21st-century skills and developmentally appropriate skills.

  8. Teaching Mathematical Thinking: Tasks & Questions to Strengthen Practices and Processes

    This new resource by maths education expert Marian Small helps schools and districts to refine their teaching of standards-based mathematical practices. Small devotes a chapter to each of the eight standards of practice and includes a discussion of what each standard looks like in Years F-2, 3-5 and 6-8. Specific attention is given to helping students make sense of problems and persevere in solving them (Standard 1) and to encouraging students to create viable mathematical arguments and to effectively and respectfully critique the reasoning of others (Standard 3). The author also discusses how to formatively assess student performance for each practice standard.

  9. Unpacking Fractions: Classroom-Tested Strategies to Build Students’ Mathematical Understanding

    Monica Neagoy, drawing on decades of research studies, evidence from teacher practice, and 25 years of experience working around the world with teachers, students and parents, addresses seven big ideas in the teaching and learning of fractions in Years 2-6. Each idea is supported by a vignette from a real classroom, common misconceptions, a thorough unpacking of productive mathematical thinking, and several multistep and thought-provoking problems for teachers to explore. While a solid grounding in algebra is necessary for a STEM career, the worthy goal of "algebra for all" will not be possible until "fractions for all" is a reality. Unpacking Fractions provides teachers with concrete strategies for achieving that reality - in short, helping all students gain the knowledge they need.
