Northeast Faculty Members Present at STEM Conference | News
Northeast High School faculty presented at the second annual Georgia Scholarship of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Teaching and Learning Conference on Friday, March 8. The Northeast STEM faculty's proposal, "Thinking Like Mathematicians and Political Scientists: A Two-Year High School Lesson Study in Citizen STEM Integrating Mathematics, Government, Technology, and Literacy," was accepted for presentation and six members of the team presented the project at the conference.
The Lesson Study involved continual cycles of collaborative planning, lesson observation, examination of learning outcomes, debriefing, and revision. The team reported two cycles of lesson study in a STEM learning community representing problem-based simulations associated with the presidential campaign and election of 2012. Presenters explained the process, disciplinary learning outcomes, and the benefits of multi-disciplinary approaches in secondary education.
