About the Course

Teachers will actively participate in online learning to further develop their understanding of integrating STEM in literacy using Novel Engineering.  During a book study, participants will develop familiarity with the process and then construct their own learning progression to develop a novel engineering project for their classroom.  This class is appropriate for teachers K-12 who teach literacy, science, and/or social studies. 

Required Text:

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Explain how the engineering design process can support literacy development in reading and writing.
  • Select and implement strategies and materials that aid in content/literacy development.
  • Use the Novel Engineering process to develop a lesson sequence to be implemented in the classroom.

This is a great course for anyone looking to integrate the teaching of literacy and STEM. The instructor used her extensive experience teaching Novel Engineering to give great feedback. This course helped me design a compassion-based, authentic engineering unit that I can use in my secondary science classroom!
