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.

Foundation One provides STEM educators with the tools they need to build students' vocabulary skills. It provides teachers with research-based instructional strategies to design lessons, learning experiences, and assessments. Materials for student-use focus on word attack skills (base words/roots, prefixes and suffixes) and vary by grade level.

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. 

This course with Dr. Rick Wagner and Dr. Jeanne Wanzek was recorded on April 2, 2014 in the AETN studios in Conway, Arkansas.
