Description & Coverage
Description:

There has been an increasing issue in STEM education as many lack interest and knowledge in STEM disciplines and fields. If students are not exposed to STEM-related activities and instruction in their early school years, they may never have the opportunity to gain the skills and interest that allow them to be successful later. If teachers are able to expose students to STEM-related curricula, this exposure could potentially have the ability to spark a greater interest for math and science in students while also motivating them to continue to seek STEM-related opportunities.

This book is a guidebook of best practices and innovative ideas to assist these teacher education programs through a revamping or creation of STEM education practices within a robust elementary preparation program. Through a collection of chapters from established and successful STEM programs and from programs that have expertise in creating these STEM-focused preparation programs, interested colleagues can utilize these contextual experiences to reinvigorate or create their own STEM-focused elementary teacher education programs.
