Cultivating STEM Identities


In Cultivating STEM Identities, Wendy Ward Hoffer provides elementary teachers with an accessible approach to planting the seeds of STEM success in the minds and hearts of the youngest learners. She shows how you can make time for STEM, weaving it into the rituals and routines of your classroom on a regular basis. How you think of yourself as a scientist, technology user, engineer, or mathematician is your STEM identity. In this sample you will learn about STEM identities and why they matter, then discover ways that you can spark student engagement and make learning experiences meaningful.
