Teaching Teachers: STREAMing Engineering
Burrow, Lauren; Cross, Chrissy
Science and Children, v57 n3 p78-84 Oct 2019
Created by Tufts University through a National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded project, the Novel Engineering website explains that "Novel Engineering is an integrated approach to teaching engineering and literacy" (2018) that asks teachers to support students' engagement in a project-based endeavor of problem-and-solution processes and products. The overarching structure of activities in novel engineering require students to read a novel (children's picture books or young adult chapter books both work) and engineer a creative solution to a problem described in the novel. This article shares how teachers were prepped to implement this program.
