  1. Instructional Sequence Matters, Grades 3–5: Explore Before Explain

    Instructional sequence matters, grades 3–5 is a one-stop resource that will inspire you to reimagine how you teach science in elementary school. The book discusses two popular approaches for structuring your lessons: POE and 5E. It also shows how simple shifts in the way you arrange and combine activities will help young students construct firsthand knowledge, while allowing you to put the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) into practice. Instructional sequence matters will give you both the rationale and the real-life examples to restructure the hands-on approaches you are now using. The result will be a sequence for science instruction that promotes long-lasting understanding for your third-, fourth-, or fifth-grade students.

  4. STEM-Rich Maker Learning: Designing Equity with Youth of Color

    In recent years, maker-centred learning has emerged in schools and other spaces as a promising new phase of STEM education reform. With a sharp focus on equity, the authors investigate community-based STEM-making programs to determine whether, and how, they can address the educational needs of youth of colour. The authors explore what it means for youth to engage in making with the explicit goal of addressing injustices in their lives. The text features longitudinal ethnographic data and compelling examples that show how youth of colour from low-income backgrounds innovate and make usable artefacts to improve their lives and their communities. This book is essential reading for STEM educators in both formal and informal educational settings.

  5. Building a K–12 STEM Lab: A Step-by-Step Guide for School Leaders and Tech Coaches

    Few resources are available for district and school leaders looking to establish successful STEM labs. Frequently, efforts don’t gain traction because they lack a systemic approach and support from a broad spectrum of stakeholders within the school community. Building a K-12 STEM Lab addresses this challenge from the perspective of the leader, identifying opportunities for capacity building and ensuring equal access and equity for all students. The comprehensive and flexible approach outlined in this book will help school and district leaders develop productive community partnerships in support of STEM education within the STEM lab and throughout the school.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.
