Sage, Andrew J.; Cervato, Cinzia; Genschel, Ulrike; Ogilvie, Craig A. – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2021
Students are most likely to leave science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors during their first year of college. We developed an analytic approach using random forests to identify at-risk students. This method is deployable midway through the first semester and accounts for academic preparation, early engagement in university…

Lin, Chien-Liang; Tsai, Chun-Yen – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
The development of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Liberal Arts, and Mathematics) curricula has emerged in the past decade. A pedagogical STEAM (Scaffolding, Tutoring, Engaging, Argumentation, and Modeling) model was proposed in this study to implement interdisciplinary STEAM curricula. The effects of this model on students' project…

Paynter, Jeanne L. – Corwin, 2021
Are you cultivating the real-world creative problem-solving skills today's diverse learners need for future success? Or have we leaned so far into test preparation that we have left no room for developing our students' unique talents, leaving them disengaged and unmotivated? With the new brain-based Talent-Targeted Teaching and Learning model…
