The recently released report, Science and Engineering in Preschool through Elementary Grades from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, shows that some of the most essential elements of effective, early STEM teaching are an added emphasis on English language learning, mathematics, and preparation.
With these focuses in mind, educators can develop learning environments that support the development and demonstration of proficiencies in science and engineering, including making connections across the contexts of learning, which can help children see their ideas, interests, and practices as meaningful not just for school, but also in their lives. These areas of cross curricular teaching, combined with high-quality learning, prepare students for future learning and inspire excitement for STEM.
Through rigorous testing and years of classroom use, EiE®’s programs have been proven to address all these needs with:
- Integrated social emotional learning and ELL support at point of use.
- Cross-curricular activities to reinforce math and literacy skills.
- On-demand professional development opportunities to ensure mastery.
Our curricula, paired with our professional development services, make for a lifelong love of learning for both students and teachers. We invite you to read the study from the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, to explore our programs, or contact your regional representative to learn more about EiE and our proven teaching methodologies.
