Transcript of Staff STEM Presentation 2012
What is our role
in a world where students have
instantaneous access to information?
It's time to think differently
"Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do!"
How is Northglenn High School perceived by the community?
Students hiding under
tables in the library?
"Northglenn is a ghetto school."
"I don't want my child to go to school with brown kids."
"That school has the lowest test scores in the district"
"They don't offer anything rigorous."
"I've heard they are going to close Northglenn down, just like Niver Creek."
Where are we heading?
Learning is driven by challenging, open-ended, loosely-structured, contextual and relevant practical problems
Students work in collaborative groups
Teachers take on the role as "facilitators" of learning
Authentic Field Experiences
students ask the questions
students create a hypothesis
students construct new knowledge
students discuss and reflect on discoveries
students apply newly acquired knowledge in own life
Engage students with an authentic problem rooted in context (science, social science, engineering) and have them analyze, research, study the problem with cultural, social, political, economic, historical, scientific, environmental, and artist lenses. All staff will be STEM teachers that serve as specialists in their areas of expertise.
STEM will not be the subculture of our school
STEM will be the culture of our school
EVERY CLASSROOM...EVERY TEACHER
