Course Details
Course Description:
The new Common Core State Standards have placed a great emphasis on Mathematics and English Language Arts. Science, Technology, Mathematics and Engineering achievement in the United States has received greater attention as the nation continues to be a major competitor in the world economy and in the research and development of new technologies. This course provides a general overview of the three initiatives that will drive the curriculum across all areas of K-12 education. The course starts with an overview and a brief history of STEM initiatives as well as the reasons why these subject areas are critical to the success of American students. Participants will examine the most recent college readiness reports based upon student performance in various benchmark indicators and will gain a deeper understanding of the importance of these critical areas and their role in the Common Core Learning Standards. Participants will have an opportunity to conduct in-depth analysis and review of the Next Generation Science Standards and how these will direct K-12 education in the 21st century. Participants will also research and utilize STEM resources and lesson plans for their own classrooms. During the course a pedagogical analysis of STEM standards will permit participants to examine how courses in specific content areas can complement and support STEM education to further prepare students for college and competitive careers.
