What Tweens and Teens Can Teach Us about STEM

See on Scoop.itK-12 School Libraries

Student responses to a recent question posted by the NYT Learning Network confirm that coaching is the best teaching style for STEM subjects, writes science educator Anne Jolly in her MiddleWeb blog STEM by Design.

Susan Grigsby‘s insight:

These insights can help us in more areas than STEM even though they are especially useful in these areas. I love the examples the students reported – it is not lost on me that NONE of them cited any drill-and-practice-for-a-standardized-test teaching style. They ALL cited examples of using music, using hands-on, using CREATIVE methods to make lessons sticky. Because that’s what good teachers do.
