Whether you are looking for resources on integrating science, technology, engineering, and math or on infusing the arts to transform STEM into STEAM, these curated compilations will help you plan different approaches to integrated studies.
Diane Johnson's insight:
Nice collection of resources for integrating lessons, units, courses.
Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and maintained by the American Institutes for Research (AIR), the CS10K Community is a component of NSF’s CS10K initiative, which seeks to have 10,000 well-trained computer science teachers in 10,000 high schools across the United States

Much of science involves finding patterns in observations and explaining them in terms of a small number of principles or ideas. For students to appreciate how science works, they need to have a sense of the range of observations (phenomena) that are used to form the patterns and the helpfulness of the principles or ideas in explaining them. Project 2061’s evaluations of science textbooks revealed that textbooks rarely engaged students with phenomena—real-world objects, systems, and events—relevant to important science ideas. In addition, the textbooks rarely included phenomena that directly address the often incorrect ideas that students may already have and rarely guided students in reconciling phenomena with scientifically accepted ideas (Kesidou & Roseman, 2002; Stern & Roseman, 2004; American Association for the Advancement of Science [AAAS], 2002, 2005).

Diane Johnson's insight:
Teachers can use for stations, differentiated work, absent students, providing more (and different) practice, and a range of ideas I've not listed. Students could use as a vehicle for presentation of ideas, works, solutions, etc. There is a free and a cost version.
Edutopia blogger Andrew Miller considers the natural alignment between the NGSS and PBL, as both approaches focus on deeper learning - not just the science content, but also the content of being a scientist.
