STEM Teaching Toolkit
The National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future’s (NCTAF) Learning Studios program has produced a toolkit to help K-12 district curriculum coordinators and teacher-leaders improve science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum design through authentic, collaborative, PBL experiences. The toolkit provides a set of design and evaluation tools, protocols, rubrics, and case studies to help education stakeholders improve STEM curriculum and make connections to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in three ways: by engaging outside content experts to bring real-world content, data, and experiences into teaching and learning; by developing cross-curricular teams that explore STEM integration; and by integrating subject areas to strengthen science learning for all students.
