All Saints' Day School

Schools need to empower teachers -- and teachers, their schools -- to invest in daring, innovative models of learning that place collaborative, interdisciplinary, inquiry-based challenges at the center of our daily work. As a history and religious studies teacher, I feel ill-equipped to lead my students in anything resembling a STEM-based learning challenge. To live the message I mean for my students to learn, however, I sense that teachers like me are precisely the ones who need to pick up and practice these new ways, and make them ours. To that end, I'd love some feedback and wisdom from STEM educators about how this project might find authentic expression from their content areas and their expertise. I'm also keenly interested to learn how "non-STEM" teachers might re-think our personal approaches to teaching to help develop the inner Pilates muscles of STEM thinking from a wholly different perspective.
