Supporting Goals-Based Learning with STEM Outreach
Kesidou, Sofia; Koppal, Mary
Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, v5 n3-4 p5-12 Jul-Dec 2004
Drawing on knowledge and experience gained through the study of K-12 science, mathematics, and technology education practices and efforts to reform them, this article suggests several ways to strengthen outreach efforts aimed at students in the elementary grades. The article begins with a description of Project 2061, an education reform initiative of the American Association for the Advancement of Science that promotes the goal of science literacy for all students and the importance of coherent and specific content standards to guide K-12 teaching and learning. The authors then recommend several strategies and a number of resources that can help those in the scientific and technological community to develop outreach efforts and materials that are aligned with and support the goals that today's students and teachers are striving to achieve.
