The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) supports the Center on Instruction definition of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education as, "an interdisciplinary approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons as students apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in contexts that make connections between school, community, work, and the global enterprise enabling the development of STEM literacy and with the ability to compete in the new economy."

ADE, in partnership with Teacher Created Materials (TCM), AETN, and ArkansasIDEAS, has developed an evidence-based classroom STEM education resource program to support educators in K-12 classrooms. These resources specifically focus on classroom-level instructional strategies, materials, and assessments. This program will directly assist teachers in learning practical, standards-based strategies that support the seven STEM Foundations.

The resources in Foundation Five pair the reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills of literacy with the principles required for learning about historical events. The program provides STEM educators with materials that assist students as they learn to analyze and think critically about a broad range of historical events. It includes a variety of high-interest, visually appealing digital resources that meet the Common Core State Standards. Additional components assist STEM educators in teaching research and inquiry skills as well as vocabulary and comprehension strategies.

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to dyslexia and important new information relevant to recent dyslexia research. In an effort to dispel pervasive myths about this learning disability, Dr. Rick Wagner, of Florida State University and the Florida Center for Reading Research, shares his expertise. He discusses common characteristics of dyslexia, the areas of learning affected, and the principles of appropriate assessments for students with the disability. Dr. Jeanne Wanzek, also of FSU, shares her expertise on how these instructional approaches connect to the three-tier model of Response to Intervention, discussing the components of each of the three tiers as they relate to students with dyslexia.

LDC Peer Review: The Jurying Process

The Literacy Design Collaborative's peer review system provides the opportunity for educators to participate in a jurying process that facilitates the development of exemplary disciplinary literacy lessons. This course, which is intended for educators and coaches who are already familiar with LDC and the LDC CoreTools system but would like to become more familiar with the peer review procedure, provides the opportunity to learn about each component of jurying while using the peer review rubric to evaluate a selection of LDC Anchor Modules.

The course is broken up into a series of work sessions that you may wish to complete with another educator or team of educators from your school district or from your local education service cooperative. Many of the activities recommend that educators work together to come to a consensus during peer review.

Dr. Suzanne Simons, LDC Chief of Instruction and Design, and Rob Kantner, LDC Community of Practice Manager, facilitate these work sessions, which were recorded at the AETN studios in Conway, Arkansas January 21-22, 2015.
