STEM Lesson Essentialsprovides all the tools and strategies you'll need to design integrated, interdisciplinary STEM lessons and units that are relevant and exciting to your students. With clear definitions of both STEM and STEM literacy, the authors argue that STEM in itself is not a curriculum, but rather a way of organizing and delivering instruction by weaving the four disciplines together in intentional ways. Rather than adding two new subjects to the curriculum, the engineering and technology practices can instead be blended into existing math and science lessons in ways that engage students and help them master 21stcentury skills.STEM Lesson Essentialsshows teachers how to begin the STEM integration journey with:five guiding principles for effective STEM instructionclassroom examples of what these principles look like in actionsample activities that put all four STEM fields into practicelesson planning templates for STEM units.Explicit connections are made among the STEM practices, including the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice and the Framework for K-12 Science Education, helping you easily recognize ways in which STEM lessons can engage students in multiple standards at the same time.With ideas that are practical and achievable in any classroom, STEM Lesson Essentialswill give you the confidence and knowledge to weave engineering and technology concepts into your math and science curriculum. STEM teaching doesn't have to be hard. You just have to get started. Try it out with STEM Lesson Essentials, and watch student understanding, achievement, and motivation soar.Save with bundles!

Jo Anne Vasquez is the author of the Heinemann title Tools and Traits for Highly Effective Science Teaching, K - 8. An experienced elementary science educator who has taught primary through college level courses, she has achieved national prominence through her extraordinary contributions to science education as a keynote speaker and professional developer. She is a presidential appointee to the National Science Board, governing board of the National Science Foundation; a former president of the National Science Teachers Association; and a former president of the National Science Education Leadership Association. She has been recognized with many awards, including science education's highest award, the Robert H. Carleton Award, for her outstanding contributions to the field of science education at all levels.

Michael Comer's dedication to teaching was fostered by his early experiences at Assumption School in Peekskill NY. He carried that passion into his own professional career teaching middle school science. His work with classroom educators providing hands-on training and professional development workshops led to an invitation to work with the Ministry of Education in Saudi Arabia on improving their science instruction. Michael is coauthor (with Jo Anne) of Developing Visual Literacy in Science K-8 (NSTA Press). Currently he is the National Marketing Manager for STEM at McGraw-Hill and is the proud father to Brett, Toby and Elyse (who also share his passion for learning).
