    5. 5. MCPS STEM Science, Technology, Engineering, <br /> and Mathematics Vision<br /> All students achieve full STEM literacy through seamlessly integrated instruction that is project-, problem- and standards-based.  STEM literate students are critical thinkers who are able to solve non-routine problems in a globally competitive society.<br />
    6. 6. Take a moment to reflect on the STEM vision<br />What is STEM literacy?<br />
    7. 7. Take a moment to reflect on the STEM vision<br />What is STEM literacy?<br />Having the skills necessary to be globally competitive in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. <br />
    8. 8. Take a moment to reflect on the STEM vision<br />What is being done to promote STEM literacy?<br />
    9. 9. Take a moment to reflect on the STEM vision<br />What is being done to promote STEM literacy?<br />Bringing science and engineering together helps to collaborate efforts towards STEM literacy. <br />All students receive STEM education through integrated instruction that is project-, problem-, and standards-based.<br />

    21. 21. Take a moment to reflect on the content sequence.<br />Why is the sequence of science concepts and topics important?<br />Students need to make connections between what they already know about a topic and new related topics <br />
    22. 22. What do students need to know and be able to do?<br />(View of Science <br />Weekly Planner <br />first column<br />for week 8. <br />Arrow moving <br />to point out<br />indicators.)<br />

    40. 40. Personal Reflection<br />What are the instructional implications for you and your school?<br />What are the new science resources available to you for implementation of science instruction?<br />How can you use the Integrated Kindergarten Curriculum to support your professional development? <br />
    41. 41. What’s Old - What’s New<br />Online Integrated Kindergarten Curriculum for all content areas including Science<br />Based on Science, Technology, and Engineering standards to provide opportunities for inquiry-based learning and STEM education <br />Sample Learning Tasks give suggestions for lessons that can be tailored to meet student needs<br />Science and Engineering integrated through critical thinking and academic success skills<br />Print, electronic, and online resources to allow for flexible access by all students<br />Spiral bound teacher’s guides<br /> from the National Science Foundation<br />Based on science standards focusing on skills and processes for inquiry-based learning<br />Prescribed lessons with little flexibility to meet student needs<br />Isolated science instruction with few opportunities for integration or connections outside of the science lessons<br />Rotating science units and materials making connections to other content areas difficult<br />
    42. 42. FAQs<br />Do I have to teach the science concepts in<br />order as scheduled in the curriculum?<br />The science concepts and topics are arranged throughout the school year to be sequential. Concepts build on each other. For example, being able to describe weather conditions facilitates discussions about different biomes. Understanding basic needs for survival is needed when identifying how an organism uses external features to survive.<br />Am I limited to only using the Suggested Learning<br />Tasks and Resources found within the Weekly Planner<br />to plan daily instruction?<br />Teachers use professional judgment to match learning tasks to student needs. In addition to the sample learning tasks and resources within the Integrated Kindergarten Curriculum, teachers may use tasks and resources they create and identify from other sources. <br />
    43. 43. FAQs<br />Where do I find information to help me understand<br />content related concepts and vocabulary?<br />Information to help develop your background knowledge and understanding can be found within the Resources column of the content Weekly Planner.<br />Notes to teachers are at times embedded into Sample Learning Tasks.<br />Where do I find the suggested texts and materials<br />listed in the Resources column?<br />This varies. Some print materials from publishers were purchased by MCPS for each elementary school. Other print materials are suggested due to their alignment to indicators and may be available in media centers or purchased by schools. <br />
    44. 44. FAQs<br />Are all of the websites and resource links meant to be<br />used with students?<br />Some of the websites are suggested for teacher background knowledge. Teachers will need to carefully choose appropriate websites just like other materials to use instructionally with their students.<br />How do I access the online Discovery Education<br />Streaming (DE Streaming) media resources on the<br />Weekly Planners?<br />To access Discovery Education you must have an account. To create a Discovery Education account, meet with your media specialists to gain access to this rich resource.<br />
    45. 45. FAQs<br />Where do I find information about how to use the<br />materials in the MCPS Science Kit?<br />Sample Learning Tasks along with the list of MCPS Science Kit Materials in the Resources column of the Weekly Planners give suggestions for developing lessons based on student inquiry. The materials in the kit are meant to be used flexibly to promote student engagement and relevancy to meet students learning needs.<br />What is the expectation for teaching science and engineering ?<br />Science and Engineering instruction should be a regular part of an integrated day throughout the school year.<br />
