I just don’t have a clear picture of what to do. I’ve heard that statement a time or two, and I work with teachers to try to answer it. Like most challenges you face, there’s no magic formula, but I’ll share a list of tips I try to remember when I’m writing STEM lessons. This is not a comprehensive list (despite my MiddleWeb editor’s fanciful title for this post). But it’s a pretty good starting place as we strive to make our lessons as “perfect” as we can. You’ll notice that that while many of these tips are specific to STEM lessons, some are applicable to traditional lesson planning as well.

Take a look and see if you find ideas to add to your lesson design kit. Ask yourself . . . 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. So that’s my starter pack of tips . . . Before you throw up your hands and decide you can never write a lesson that has all of these components, let me assure that you can. My advice – just go for it. Engineering is Elementary.
