Using STEM to Enhance LIteracy

The world of STEM—science, technology, engineering, and math—provides a rich environment that motivates children to want to learn more. Children often prefer reading about spiders and dinosaurs to fictional characters. STEM activities help students build vocabulary, incorporate problem-solving skills, and analyze complex text with real-world applications. Teachers have joined us in Cullowhee for "Using STEM To Enhance Literacy." They will maximize classroom time by integrating literacy with the natural connections of STEM disciplines. Participants will experience lessons that give students a desire to read, promote problem solving, and model strategies to cultivate reading comprehension. They will make messes, break things, and create minds-on STEM learning environments. Thank you to all of them for being with us!
