Teachers working in preK to grade 3 classrooms often share their concerns over a lack of time and resources to include STEAM experiences in their classrooms on a consistent basis. Early educators know that the STEAM disciplines matter and they want to find ways to infuse STEAM learning into the daily life of the classroom but need supports to develop experiences that challenge and excite their students. This edWebinar, based upon the new book of the same title, offers a child-centered solution to this need—STEAM provocations that preK to grade 3 educators can use regularly in the classroom during segments of less-structured time. Starting with an understanding of STEAM provocations as child-driven explorations that encourage new ideas, interactions, and ways of thinking, we:
- discuss the importance of child-led, collaborative STEAM learning
- explore strategies for STEAM inclusion in the preK – grade 3 classroom
- explore STEAM provocations and discuss how to differentiate these experiences to meet the needs of all students
- discuss management approaches and strategies to support child-led work within a classroom setting
This recorded edWebinar will be of benefit to preK through grade 3 teachers and school leaders.
