AH0A7412-1-1.jpgThis November, the EiE professional development team is offering two free webinars designed to improve your teaching practice: on November 8, "Effective Questioning Strategies for Your STEM Classroom" and on November 15, "Meaningful Integration of STEM in Elementary Classrooms." In these sessions, you'll learn from the experts as you study classroom footage, align lessons to national standards, test out new questioning strategies, and more! Read on to learn more about these interactive, one-hour sessions and register today!

Effective Questioning Strategies

In "Effective Questioning Strategies for Your STEM Classroom," you will view clips from the EiE video library that will give you a window into a real elementary classroom where a teacher is using effective questioning strategies. You'll learn how effective questioning strategies can help support students during engineering design challenges and encourage them to persevere through failure. You will leave this session equipped with questioning strategies you can use immediately with your students during problem-solving STEM activities. Register today and join us on November 8th!

Meaningful Integration

Have you ever taught an integrated engineering lesson that is so engaging, it encourages even the most ardent math-hater in your classroom to complete some challenging calculations without a word of complaint? Integration between STEM subjects can be incredibly valuable to young learners when it’s done in a meaningful way. But what defines meaningful integration? This one-hour, interactive session will ask you to consider what meaningful integration of STEM subjects looks like in the classroom and which characteristics of an integrated lesson can add value to student learning and understanding. Register today and join us on November 15th!
