  1. 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.

  10. Creative Coding: Lessons and Strategies to Integrate Computer Science Across the 6-8 Curriculum

    Access to high-quality computer science (CS) instruction has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. Thanks to this movement, more students start the middle years with some foundational knowledge of CS and coding. This new set of creative skills empowers students to express themselves in compelling ways, but students still need opportunities and support to develop and hone those skills. This book helps classroom teachers develop activities and projects to encourage computational thinking and coding skills, and to build bridges between those skills and practice. For maths, science, English and Humanities and Social Science teachers, the resources in this book provide guidance to start integrating coding into their classes to complement and strengthen existing instruction.
