NEW TOOL: How can science instruction leverage and develop student interests? Short answer: In so many different ways!

Posted on March 18, 2019

The NRC Framework highlights the importance of regularly focusing science instruction on learner interests. To help educators support this process, we have previously published a STEM Teaching Tool that describes a general instructional approach to surface student interests and also a PD module on how to design culturally responsive instruction. Our new STEM Teaching Tool takes this work one step further by describing a range of specific approaches for interest-driven science instruction with relevant resources and background.
