Instructional Resources

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.

C3 Creative Computing Curriculum

Lorem ipsum, it is a show
This guide is a collection of ideas, strategies, and activities for an introductory creative computing experience using the Scratch programming language. The activities are designed to support familiarity and increasing fluency with computational creativity and computational thinking. In particular, the activities encourage exploration of key computational thinking concepts (sequence, loops, parallelism, events, conditionals, operators, data) and key computational thinking practices (experimenting and iterating, testing and debugging, reusing and remixing, abstracting and modularizing).

CREST-M Math And Robotics Curriculum

Virtual
Children using robotics for engineering, science, technology, and mathematics (CREST-M) created and evaluated 3 curriculum units. The project focused on developing elementary math skills using robotics and storytelling to be engaging for students from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in STEM fields and to be appropriate for all ability levels including the gifted. The unit includes an engineering design loop to help students create and program robots using LEGO® WeDo 2.0. Students also use the scientific method in a problem-based learning (PBL) investigation in which they design and conduct experiments. The unit features a comprehensive storyline in which diverse characters solve real-world problems using STEM skills.
