A Journey from STEM to STEAM: A Middle School Case Study
Hunter-Doniger, Tracey; Sydow, Lindsey
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v89 n4-5 p159-166 2016
This article examines the initial journey of a middle school in South Carolina from a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) curriculum to a STEAM (STEM + art) curriculum. This is the first of a three-year longitudinal study that investigated the perceptions of the effectiveness, relative importance, and sustainability of a STEAM curriculum in which the arts animated learning on a daily basis for both teachers and administrators during the first year of implementation beginning in the fall 2014. The article also investigates the response that the faculty of a STEM-oriented middle school had to the induction of STEAM curriculum training.
