We share evidence-based K-12 learning strategies that empower you to improve education.
STEM education provides many opportunities and challenges. How can our practice evolve to meet the needs of 21st-century learners?
What would a successful stem magnet school, at middle school, look like?
Science,math linked to engineering?
I am in search of an example of a middle school unit as a good model/example.... Can anyone help?
A great topic! As a newbie, I am a bit lost, but I have my own version of an answer to this.
I just finished pilot studies to prove the effectiveness and speed of Unified Super Learning (USL) which can make average students learn STEM subjects 10-20 times faster in general. In the pilot tests, however, I simply focused on Math (K7-11).
What I did was - with the collaborations with a middle and a high school - that I taught 1 month math materials in simply 1 lecture for about 35-50 minutes and nothing more. Students had no review notes, no homeworks, no extra solutions, no sharing of my website, nor Facebook links, nada due to some strange and strict school policies.
When all the students took the tests 2 days after my class, their average jumped up more or less 20% (between 15-27% rise) while the expected % gain for students who take the regular school classes were 30-40% average after 1 month study for which the average students spend about 50-60 hours in total for the math classes.
The pilot studies consisted of about 270 students from these 2 schools and you can view some of the data and survey results from my website http://www.uslgoglobal.com
Nothing even remotely similar has ever been done on Math education, let alone science education, this is a totally ground-breaking work and I hope some of you pay attention to this as I will try to run some pilot studies in the USA as well if I am invited.
By the way, there was no exaggeration in the summary I wrote here.
