Have to teach ELA, so how to integrate STEM? Stem gives students a reason to learn.
10
Some think STEM equals a laptop in front of a kid, but doesn't have to be technology.

Project based learning has been around a long time. Challenge is changing mindset of students. We're teaching writing in isolation. Can use writing across the curriculum. Example using science journals, math journals. Writing doesn't have to be taught at "writing" time but can happen throughout the day.
13
How to make that happen over time depends on stability of staff to be sustainable. Need to build leadership of teachers so they can keep the system going if teachers do leave. Implement through phases. Start small with teachers coming together. A phase could be teaching through reading.
14
Designed PD in a way that teachers are building understanding as students will be asked to do.
15
Can pitch Title to support STEM areas.

17
Idea: "The WIKI" from CTE curriculum Consortium-Lessons available that cover state standards that need to be taught, but also cover work area standards. This can give examples of what lessons can look like. Can this be created for primary grades as well? A bank of lessons that can help begin the teaching of STEM. Help integrate STEM across other content.
18
Idea: PD and strong PLC conversations to help. How do you keep that moving in the right direction? A coach can work with one teacher to allow success which others can see.
19
Idea: Start small. Maybe each grade level takes on one project and tries it. This will help build leadership capacity.
20
Idea: Leader will have to keep positive attitude to build that culture by continuing to address and push STEM. This will create a culture Parents and kids will want to know more about.
21
22
Next Steps: Develop a plan starting w/leadership team and vision of STEM. Identify barriers. Visit other's (campuses, teachers) that are successful.
