On this page, you’ll find all kinds of content for your classroom–lesson and unit plans, classroom activities, and videos. You can use the drop-down fields on the right side of the page to search for content by type, content, and grade level. You’ll also find two instructional tools developed by STEMSTL’s workgroups: the professional-development-quality rubric is designed to help professional-development providers self-assess the quality of their programs, and the transportable skills document defines and provides examples of the most in-demand professional competencies.

We continue to update our listings as program providers develop new content, so visit us often! Can’t find what you need here? Let us know! Want your STEM program’s information listed on the site? Submit your information here.

STEMSTL’s Pathways to Workforce workgroup developed the Transportable Skills document to connect K-12 educators with the 21st-century skills employers have identified as a need for their workforce.

The quality professional development rubric was created to provide STEM professional development providers an opportunity to do a self-assessment and reflection of the types of professional development that are being offered compared to some identified best practices of quality professional development. The STEMSTL Professional Development workgroup engaged in comprehensive research on best professional development practices and aggregated their findings into the scaled rubric.

This rubric is intended to be used as a tool for self-reflection rather than judgment or evaluation Your self assessment of your professional development activity is meant to provide you a “temperature check” as to where you currently are in implementing high quality STEM professional development.

Elements

N/A
Many students who qualify for Elements have never experienced the challenge of grappling with difficult mathematics concepts and building the persistence to master such concepts. Student surveys indicate an improvement in students' intellectual abilities as a result of participation, including: Development of self-discipline & study habits. Better time management and organizational skills. Transfer of logical problem-solving techniques to other academic areas. A more positive approach to school. Ability to participate in higher-level mathematics coursework during high school & college. Elements coursework offers studies in advanced mathematics, based on the Elements of Mathematics series, to highly-talented middle school students. Courses include formal logic, along with a broadened and accelerated course of math that is very different than mathematics curriculum used in schools.
