Transcript of Integrated STEM:
An Operational Definition
"STEM education is an interdisciplinary approach to learning that removes the traditional barriers separating the four disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and integrates them into real-world, rigorous, and relevant learning experiences for students"
(Vasquez, Sneider, Comer, 2013, p. 4)
Let's explore our own examples...
is an ongoing process aimed at understanding and improving student learning. It involves making our expectations explicit and public; setting appropriate criteria and high standards for learning quality; systematically gathering, analyzing, and interpreting evidence to determine how well performance matches those expectations and standards; and using the resulting information to document, explain, and improve performance"(T.A. Angelo, 1995, 2)
Next Portfolio Class:
"As use of the acronym moves from national policies to state and local education,
there is a compelling need to clarify the meaning of STEM for school districts, and classrooms"

STEM Lesson Essentials: Integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
In your groups, develop a definition or description of integration.
STEM equals science or mathematics (or engineering)
STEM means both science and mathematics
STEM Means Science and Incorporates Technology, Engineering, or Math
STEM Equals a Quartet of Separate Disciplines.
STEM Means Science and Math Are Connected by One Technology or Engineering
STEM Means Combining Two or Three Disciplines
STEM Means Coordination Across Disciplines
STEM Means Complementary Overlapping Across Disciplines.
STEM Means a Transdisciplinary Course 0r Program.
Share your STEM perspective graphic with your group.
How do the diagrams align and/or
diverge from each other?
In your group, develop a description of a lesson plan that takes one of the approaches to STEM education described in STEM Lesson Essentials.

Today we will explore perspectives on integrated STEM education.
We will compare these perspectives to our own.
1) Integration does not mean abandoning standards. Concepts & skills embodied in standards is still prioritized
2) The power of integration is to allow students to see how the score ideas and practices from the disciplines work together to help answer questions & solve problems.
3) integration enables teachers to shift from approaches that
students core ideas and practices to an approach that helps students
what they learn to other contexts.
These authors stress 3 primary points about integration:
