Engage in this interactive session to find out how the
idea of anchoring to a phenomena to begin a STEM unit lays out a plan for
helping students to see how science impacts their community.
1. Understand why the scenario helps students connect the phenomena to their own community/ global issues; 2. Show how to move from the unit phenomena introduction to the crafting the storyline for the student learning; and 3. Teachers will have a chance to practice developing their own scenario based on a given phenomena.
