    Professional Development Opportunities in

    STEM Education


    Effectively Integrate Common Core Standards, A Framework for K-12 Science Education, & Next Generation Science Standards


    STEM education is the latest buzzword; but what does STEM mean? A Framework for K-12 Science Education shares a vision for an integration of science and engineering practice with disciplinary core content and cross cutting concepts. How does this translate to classroom instruction? How can Common Core Standards be integrated into STEM learning? What instructional strategies best promote STEM learning? Join us in our professional development workshops to explore these important questions and more.
