Education and literacy equal innovation

1,291

Published on

A panel of children's literacy and science education experts were on Capitol Hill to champion a new approach to STEM education that will make these critical disciplines more accessible to young people. Introducing The Curious Adventures of Sydney and Symon in: Water Wonders, a new STEM-meets-literacy resource for children ages 6-8, the National Writing Project, Reading Is Fundamental, and FableVision outlined the importance of their collaborative effort, and provided examples of how Water Wonders is currently being used in children's literacy programs nationwide.

    8. 11.   “ Research indicates that elementary school is the critical juncture for maintaining student interest in science and is the point at which girls, in particular, turn away from science and math.” (Sources: 7. D.M. Davison et al., ―What Does Integration of Science and Mathematics Really Mean?‖ School Science and Mathematics, Vol. 95, No. 5, 1995, pp. 226-230. 8. N.G. Lederman and M. Niess, ―The Nature of Science: Naturally?‖ School Science and Mathematics, Vol. 97, No. 1, 1997, pp. 1-2. 9. W.M. Roth, ―Learning to Talk Engineering Design: Results from an Interpretive Study in a Grade 4/5 Classroom,‖ International Journal of Technology and Design Education, Vol. 6, 1996, pp. 107-135.)   Student Engagement Crisis in STEM Education And The Problem Starts EARLY
    9. 12. “ Elementary-school teachers continue to teach science/math in isolation , grapple with barriers of insufficient content knowledge to better integrate disciplines , have inadequate instructional time , have limited access to or awareness of curriculum resource s that blend disciplines .” (Source: J.W. McBride and F.L. Silverman, ―Integrating Elementary/Middle School Science and Mathematics,‖ School Science and Mathematics, Vol. 91, No. 7, 1991, pp. 285-292.)     Educators Need More STEM Infrastructure Support
    10. 13. Educators need STEM Curriculum Integration “ Even more pronounced in low socio-economical-status schools, a high percentage of which are not involved in any type of curriculum integration.” (Source:  D.E. Arredondo and T.T. Rucinski, ―Integrated Curriculum: Its Use, Initiation and Support in Midwestern Schools,‖ Mid-Western Educational Researcher, Vol. 9, No. 2, 1996, pp. 37- 41.)  
    11. 14. Cultivating science skills within literacy development can be a powerful way to build reading students’ skills and learn science content at the same time. (Carnegie Corp. of NY and Institute for Advanced Study Report, 2007) <ul><li>Inquiry science, which promotes students’ construction of meaning through exploration of scientific phenomenon, observations, experiments, and hands-on activities, provides an authentic context for language use . </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>(National Research Council, 1996) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>1996 2007
