STEAM education provides students with ways to learn though artistically engaging them in activities.It is a way of teaching to bring back meaning and value in arts in education. As professional educators, we can STEAM our lesson plans by leading students to not only strive for excellence but to provide ways of passion
In this video, Christopher Edmin expresses his idea of creating magic while incorporating STEAM into the classrooms. Leading students to not only strive for excellence but to provide ways of passion. How can we effectively teach STEAM with creativity, without straying away from common core standards?
Major Issue within STEAM education: Underrepresentation of race and gender.

Numeracy: How does one make sense of their world?

  • The very foundation of STEAM Education is the way Science and Math are perceived. For example, do your students like science and math? Or do they loathe it? How has their previous experinces impacted their feelings towards learning?
  • How do we view the world around us? Do we question the basis of human understanding?
  • Is there life outside our planet?
  • Is the earth flat or round?
In B.O.B's Stand Point theory, his cultural background causes him see this issue of the earth being flat as truth.

This video provides the narrative of Nicole Cabera Salazar, who is viewed as a minority in the STEM field. She brings her personal connection to help others fight against their preconceived biases through socialization and institutional bias about STEAM. She states, “White men who only 30% of the US population make up over 50% of the STEAM workforce, that means a large fraction that is made up of minorities is being left out, meaning people of color, women, people with disabilities, and sex gender minorities. I think that diversifying STEAM is a social justice issue. it’s only fair to bring proper representation for every person in STEAM, because it’s the right thing to do.” Nicole contributes to the diversity in STEAM, yet the larger issue is understanding why so many groups are underrepresented in these STEAM disciplines.

Girls in STEAM Education
Fallacies play into engineering or making sense of the world. How do fallacies impact teaching children? As educators what fallacies do we need to be aware of?

How might we teach "WHy the Earth is Round" to students who perceive the opposite?

Using 7 C's of Effective Teaching

  • Challenging/Captivating- Using a object lesson with an orange. This physical model will bring in the idea of perciving how we view it through different angles.
  • Consolidating/Clarifying- Students can engage Using science facts, pictures, and videos.
  • Caring/Controlling/Conferring- Respecting students beliefs while explaining content. For Example: In a situation where student explains that they think the earth is flat because B.O.B states it is and that he is their favorite rapper. Teacher can challenge the students thinking while respecting their role model.
How might we artistically engage all students?

In my volunteer experience, I heard the 1st grade teacher call the students mathematicians and scientists. I thought this was a brilliant idea because it brought the big idea down to their level while imparting self-efficacy and passion within their ability to learn.
