Exploring the Primary Curriculum
- Explores the nature of STEM education and why it matters
- Highlights the opportunities for STEM learning across the curriculum
- Supports teachers to design and innovate engaging STEM learning experiences
- Includes a chapter on STEM in the early years.
The book covers various aspects of STEM education through multiple authors' lenses. I recommend it to anybody who study STEM.
This is a useful book full of activities that is promoting a more STEM approach to the primary curriculum rather than a 'subject approach' and also encouraging what Papert called 'constructionism' learning via making. This will be a useful addition to any school's 'bookshelf' for teachers to dip into to encourage a more open critical thinking approach to STEM teaching. Looking for 'real' problems rather than packaged solutions to learning.
Well organized book.
