ED 5630 - STEAM, Next General Science Standards and the Common Core: Combining These Frameworks as we Create Curriculum

This course will combine the Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core, and STEAM frameworks to create or modify curriculum in our classrooms.  We will discuss ways to incorporate inquiry science into multiple disciplines and foster curiosity for our students. We will discuss ways of engaging our learners through exploration and create a variety of alternative assessment tools, to include more creativity and expression for our students. Throughout this course will take a look at curriculum and assessment techniques and build upon what we currently do to allow more flexibility for our students in our classrooms. Participants will share techniques they have had success with, review current best practices in the areas of science literacy, and develop assessments to use and reflect upon with the group.
