Our top-selling practical guide still demonstrates how you can bring to life the vision of the Standards for teaching, professional development, assessment, content, programs, and school systems. Throughout the book you'll learn ways to form productive partnerships for reform, inside and outside your building, with other education stakeholders.
The book also offers a wealth of related websites and a detailed index for quick reference. Not all community college facilities and students are the same, but this book will teach you and your students to "see" your particular physical environment and procedures through a safety-conscious lens.
Teaching STEM Literacy is comprised of ready-made, open-ended lesson plans reviewed and tested by teachers, that help educators integrate STEM learning into the early childhood classroom. The lessons are written in the 5 E's format, and are linked to the Next Generation Science Standards. They encourage young children to explore STEM connections and link to children's books about STEM topics.
With the inclusion of climate change in the NGSS, the time is ripe for a program that guides students to not only learn about but also engage in environmental activism. This guide to getting youth involved in energy management fills that need.
Young Voices for the Planet started out as a film series featuring students who are actively trying to shrink the carbon footprint of their schools, homes, and communities. This companion to that film series includes inspiring stories of youth in action and a guide to practical student activism.
Part I contains the true stories of seven youth projects, allowing you to follow their paths to success. The films--all of which can be accessed free of charge--supplement this part of the text by providing an introduction to climate science and energy curriculum for upper elementary through high school. These powerful stories can be integrated into lessons on STEM, Social Studies, and Environmental Studies. They will also help to teach about democracy and civic engagement.
Part II is a practical action guide to begin a project that is important to students' own communities. Whether the project is integrated into the regular curriculum, structured for enrichment or remediation, or organized under the auspices of a club or community effort, educators will find many practical tips for success. "Think globally, act locally" isn't just a bumper sticker. It's the game plan for exciting and powerful student activism. This section describes how in-school or after-school groups can begin their own efforts to save the planet, including the nitty-gritty details on planning, financing, safety, and liability.
