The Kind of STEM Teachers We Need

The Kind of STEM Teachers We Need | Teachers Teaching Teachers | Scoop.it

In a preschool class a few years back, I watched 3-year-old twin boys puzzle over a pulley with a plastic bucket on it. They were absorbed by the contraption for the full 10 minutes that I watched them. One boy would tug on the pulley cord, and the bucket would rise. Both boys would look up for several seconds, then the other one would tug on his side of the pulley cord and the bucket would descend. Another pause, this time to look down. Silence. They were not simply jerking a cord for the sake of pulling it. They were inquirers on the verge of figuring out something deeply important to them at the moment.

Make Writing: A Toolkit for Teachers - Free Download: K-2 Research and Information Writing Unit

Make Writing: A Toolkit for Teachers - Free Download: K-2 Research and Information Writing Unit | Teachers Teaching Teachers | Scoop.it

"Happy New Year! I’m beginning a bunch of curriculum design work in districts this year, and I thought I’d share a few things that are emerging from the process. As I explained before the holidays, the teachers that I know are eager to get their hands on simple but powerful units for primary writers. They have little time to unpack lengthy documents, and while many appreciate the sort of tight guidance that fully articulated plans provide, others prefer to craft their own while aligning to agreed upon targets.

 

This first unit engages K-2 writers in research and information writing. You’ll find the overview, calendar, and very first lesson in the document below. I’ll be adding another each day until the entire unit is complete."
