So, where is Susan jet-setting off to this summer? Chicago! I will be presenting at the High Impact Technology Exchange Conference.
ABOUT HI-TECI will be presenting the STEM units that I co-wrote for the Whiteriver Unified School District. I will be sharing how we took our charge of "Prepare Our Kids for PARCC", the Common Core State Standards, the district-adopted curriculum, and the district initiatives and created comprehensive STEM units. I will share the process of combining these elements with 21st century skills and embedded professional development to create a complete package. Finally, through a grant, I will share how we were able to pay our teachers a stipend to take the National Science Foundation ST4STEM course to empower them to write their own STEM units.
While in ChiTown, I would love to do a Meet-Up. So if you are attending the HI-TEC conference or will be in the Chicago area July 22-24, we should meet up and talk all things STEM. Send me an email to SRodriguez@STEM-Ready.com and I'll set up the Meet-Up location and time.
