Student at computer T his Web site was developed to provide middle school teachers with a comprehensive, single source education tool. Connecte²d Teaching presents a unique real-life scenario in earthquake engineering design, offering students the opportunity to increase their understanding while motivating them to learn more, and to explore the fascinating world of STEM – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The site is divided into several interrelated sections covering a wide range of materials, with each area providing distinctive learning objectives. The Lesson Plans section contains materials that will engage students in authentic, disaster-related projects. The Shake & Quake section is an interactive simulation tool, which allows the student to assume the role of structural engineer and to design a building.
