Course: Implementing STE(a)M in the Physics Classroom
STE(a)M in action in a physics classroom is magical. When students are able to apply their knowledge and understanding of physics to create, design, engineer, solve, collaborate, and communicate, they come to life. By engaging students in projects that are designed to cross the barriers between Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts (Humanities), and Math, we as teachers are provided with the unique opportunity to put students in a scenario that will prepare them for a bright and meaningful future: their lives and work in the "real-world".
In this module, we offer you an opportunity to:
Define STE(a)M and demonstrate why it belongs in the physics classroom.
Review concrete examples of STE(a)M lesson plans that fit in a physics curriculum.
Consider how Culturally Relevant Teaching (CRT) strategies play a role in STE(a)M lessons.
Try STE(a)M from the student's perspective.
Design a STE(a)M experience for your students.
At least 8 ready-to-go STE(a)M experiences to use in your physics classroom.
6 CRT STE(a)M Lesson Ideas.
Experiencing STE(a)M from the student's perspective.
1-3 STE(a)M experiences that you have created which are tailored to your students' learning needs.
