Esd-565 steam chart mapping | ESD-565
Rather than teaching science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics as separate and discrete subjects, STEAM integrates them into interdependent learning units based on real-world applications. This allows students to make cross-curricular connections and teaches them to apply their learning. It can also be beneficial in allowing students to access their own strengths and use them to build on their weaknesses. For example, a student who struggles with fractions may have less trouble applying them in a real-life science project compared to a general list of practice problems.
This assignment requires research of STEAM activities. Use the “STEAM Chart” to create inquiry-based learning activities that align to the various components of STEAM. For each grade range (K-3, 4-8, and 9-12), select a domain/anchor standard related to health or science. Create an activity to connect that domain/anchor standard to each component of STEAM.
At the bottom of the STEAM Chart, write a 250-500 word rationale explaining how you would use performance data from the activities to guide and engage students in their own thinking and learning and promote discovery in the inclusive classroom. Include how the data could inform future instructional planning based on identified learning gaps and patterns.
Support your research with a minimum of two scholarly resources.
While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines
