STEAM: Implementing STEAM-centric PBL in 6th -8th grades

Time & Location

Oct 26, 2018, 8:30 AM – 3:30 PM
Metro RESA Office, 1870 Teasley Dr, Smyrna, GA 30080, USA

About The Event

Participants will:

• Identify ways Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) impact our daily lives

• Identify instructional expectations and student learning goals within the Georgia Standards of Excellence

and International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) standards

• Develop an operational definition of STEAM and PBL and identify representative tasks

• Compare and contrast the roles and practices of scientists, technologists, engineers, artists, and

mathematicians

• Discuss strategies and opportunities to integrate STEAM in the classroom

• Locate resources to support planning and implementation of STEAM-centric PBL

• Plan a standards-based, STEAM PBL lesson for 6th-8th grade students

• Implement, record, and reflect upon a STEAM PBL lesson

This PL will facilitate discussion that helps teachers and instructional leaders understand the fundamentals and instructional strategies for STEAM-centric learning. The instructor will engage participants in grades 6-8 problem based model lessons that incorporate the 3-dimensions (science/math disciplinary core ideas, cross-cutting concepts, and science & engineering practices) outlined in the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE). Participants will analyze and reflect on the model lessons, and then use their reflections as a starting point to develop their own STEAM-centric PBL lessons.
