Technology and Engineering Teacher, v75 n6 p8-11 Mar 2016
Any parent, teacher, or coach who works with students today will admit there is a lot of competition for a student's time and attention. After school dismisses, video games, homework, sports, extracurricular activities, and more occupy students' time. It is equally as challenging to compete for their attention during the school day. New electives in art, music, social studies, business, and other fields are being added to the class selection list each year in many school districts. This article discusses the need for teachers to engage students, other educators, school administrators, guidance counselors, and the community as a whole in what is happening in their classrooms. The push for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) in the modern-day school curriculum makes the lack of enrollment disheartening to many technology and engineering education teachers. Teachers and supervisors are considering ways to improve enrollment in their classes and grow their technology education programs.
