This is the second half of a two-part STEAMec program. This course provides Early Career Elementary School Teachers (5 years or fewer in the classroom) with tools and techniques to support an integrated approach to Common Core math instruction. With a focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) participants will experience research-based theories and hands-on, problem-based activities to implement in their classrooms. The co-planning/co-teaching/co-reflecting model will be utilized as a means to develop a professional community and support teachers in their efforts to meet the needs and interests of all students through innovative instructional practices. Issues of equity, access and classroom-to-community engagement will be highlighted.
