Section A: Organize | STEMx “Collective impact” models, which feature one “backbone organization” and several partner organizations, typify many state STEM networks. Though these models vary from state to state, they often have similar attributes, such as emphasizing a partner approach, focusing on relationships between organizations and maximizing collective progress toward shared objectives. The theory is that better cross-sector coordination results in greater progress – more so than the isolated action of individual organizations. Through the collective impact model, practitioners have identified a set of preconditions and conditions necessary for network success. Section A below, ORGANIZE, outlines a series of steps networks should consider to fully capitalize on a collective impact approach. Find an Influential Champion Secure Adequate Financial Resources Identify a Backbone Organization Coordinating large groups in a collective initiative takes time, resources and a supporting infrastructure.
How to Engineer a Great STEM Curriculum for Middle School A MiddleWeb Blog What does a good middle school STEM curriculum look like? We’re hearing this question more and more often as schools across the U.S. and elsewhere get serious about establishing STEM learning experiences for their students in the middle grades. My answer: there’s no single, die-cut curriculum that every school should be using. There’s plenty of opportunity for hand-crafting an effective teaching and learning design as teachers and school leaders deepen their discussion about “what we want our STEM program to look like and accomplish.” I imagine this deeper discussion might include these probing questions: • Are you looking for an integrated, interdisciplinary curriculum involving science, technology, engineering, and mathematics? • Do you want STEM curriculum to involve students in tackling real-world issues through exploration, inquiry, and problem-solving experiences? To be sure, that sounds like an ambitious agenda for any curriculum. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
ISTEM: Indiana Science Technology Engineering Mathematics STEM Education Grades K-5 ~ Instruction STEM Proficient Students: STEM proficient students are able to answer complex questions, investigate global issues, and develop solutions for challenges and real-world problems while applying the rigor of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics content. STEM proficient students are logical thinkers who are technologically, scientifically, and mathematically literate. STEM Education in Elementary School The development of STEM proficient students begins in elementary schools. By the end of fifth grade, students will master grade level science, technology, engineering, and mathematics content, practices, and processes, integrate STEM contents with other disciplines, answer complex questions, investigate global issues, solve real world problems, and meet real world challenges while engaging in meaningful, purposeful, and relevant hands-on inquiry-based, problem-based and/or project-based learning experiences.

Home 4.pdf SMTI - MTE-Partnership - A-P-L-U The U.S. is ranked 25th in mathematics on the most recent international assessment conducted in 2009, and an increasing number of college freshman require remedial courses in mathematics. These statistics indicate a need for mathematics education standards reform and in turn better prepared K-12 teachers. To address the need for reformed standards, the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M) were developed and subsequently adopted as the K-12 curriculum framework by 45 states and represent a common vision for secondary mathematics across the states. APLU and our member institutions recognized that we must reexamine our policies and practices to ensure K-12 teachers (new and existing) are ready to teach these new, more rigorous standards for secondary mathematics. Through the MTE-Partnership, our goal is to transform secondary mathematics teacher preparation to ensure teacher candidates can promote mathematical excellence in their future students. Diana L.
