    • Reality for Kids Today
    • Research tells us…
      “When students are asked to write about their observations, results, reasoning processes or attitudes, they are forced to pay closer attention to details, organize data more logically, and structure their arguments in a more coherent way. In the process, they clarify their own understanding … and hone their communication skills”

      Offer an opinion based on instruction or observation
      Imagine or predict a future scenario based on knowledge
      Justify a premise of an argument or position
    • Practical Examples of STEM in the Classroom
