How to Beef Up Inquiry Lessons to Include Explicit Instruction and STEM Components
STEM is the hot topic amongst science educators around the nation. Have you wondered if you are incorporating enough STEM components into your curriculum? In order to prepare our students of today for the jobs of tomorrow, we have to provide opportunities to not only learn content, but to develop critical thinking and collaboration skills as well. Cookbook, step by step labs simply won’t do. Come and join the discussion on how to improve inquiry lessons to include explicit instruction and STEM components. *Bring a lesson you’d like to modify.

I love knowing why and how and what next. Science allows me to find some of these things. I enjoy watching middle school kidos light-bulbs come on and make connections. My other passions are my family and horses and any activity outside!!!!
