Bring STEM to life for students with zombies, rockets, celebrities, and more STEM to Story: Enthralling and Effective Lesson Plans for Grades 5-8 inspires learning through fun, engaging, and meaningful lesson plans that fuse hands-on discovery in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) with creative writing. The workshop activities within the book are the innovative result of a partnership between 826 National's proven creative writing model and Time Warner Cable's Connect a Million Minds, an initiative dedicated to connecting young people to the wonders of STEM through hands-on learning. Authentically aligned with both the Common Core State Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards, this book provides teachers, after-school and out-of-school providers, and parents with field-tested lessons, workshops, and projects designed by professionals in each field. Including reflective observations by arts and science celebrities like Jon Scieszka, Mayim Bialik, and Steve Hockensmith, lessons feature bonus activities, fun facts, and teaching points for instructors at every level. These quirky, exploratory lessons will effectively awaken student imaginations and passions for both STEM and creative writing, encourage identity with scientific endeavors, and make both science and writing fun. Grades five through eight is the critical period for engaging students in STEM, and this book is designed specifically to appeal to – and engage – this age group. The guided curricula fosters hands-on discovery, deep learning, and rich inquiry skills while feeling more like play than school, and has proven popular and effective with both students and teachers. Awaken student imagination and get them excited about STEM Fuse creative writing with STEM using hands-on activities Make scientific principles relevant to students' lives Inspire students to explore STEM topics further The demand for STEM workers is closely linked to global competitiveness, and a successful future in STEM depends upon an early introduction to the scientific mindset. The challenge for teachers is to break through students' preconceptions of STEM fields as "hard" or "boring," to show them that STEM is everywhere, it's relevant, and it's loads of fun. For proven lesson plans with just a dash of weird, STEM to Story is a dynamic resource, adaptable and applicable in school, after school, and at home.

This book is an autobiographical narration of the research activities, with penchant and passion, by two leading clinicians who turned towards stem cell research in later years of their life. The book is about facts as they happened, it also includes fiction as it should be a part of any novel and there is fantasizing as well as what one would like to be in the future. Facts, fiction and fantasy are frequently flavoured with philosophy as well. The authors axiomatically classify themselves as philosophers. Advocating that philosophy is the mother of all disciplines, they narrate how they jumped into deep waters of expensive stem cell research. The book describes how did they blunder at times and also cites the appearance of guardian angels to salvage them. Floundering from cell biology to different kinds of stem cell applications, the book describes where they have now parked at a far horizon, on the edge of new discovery of a wonderful drug. They ignite a spark of caution with restrictive regulations. The book ends with reframing the poem by Rabindranath Tagore, ‘Into that heaven of regenerative medicine, my Father, let my country awake.’

This book reports the work of a 20-year collaboration between a multidisciplinary group of clinicians and developmental scientists who have created and investigated a new tool to elicit and analyze children's narratives. This tool is the MacArthur Story Stem Battery, a systematic collection of story beginnings that are referred to as 'stems.' These stems are designed to elicit information from children about their representational worlds. This method is particularly exciting because using it allows developmental psychologists and others to gain information directly from children about their emotional states and what they are able to understand, and in turn, to use this information to explore significant emotional differences among children. This work will appeal to researchers and practitioners in developmental and clinical psychology.

This second edition of Project-Based Learning (PBL) presents an original approach to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) centric PBL. We define PBL as an “ill-defined task with a well-defined outcome,” which is consistent with our engineering design philosophy and the accountability highlighted in a standards-based environment. This model emphasizes a backward design that is initiated by well-defined outcomes, tied to local, state, or national standard that provide teachers with a framework guiding students’ design, solving, or completion of ill-defined tasks. This book was designed for middle and secondary teachers who want to improve engagement and provide contextualized learning for their students. However, the nature and scope of the content covered in the 14 chapters are appropriate for preservice teachers as well as for advanced graduate method courses. New to this edition is revised and expanded coverage of STEM PBL, including implementing STEM PBL with English Language Learners and the use of technology in PBL. The book also includes many new teacher-friendly forms, such as advanced organizers, team contracts for STEM PBL, and rubrics for assessing PBL in a larger format.

Unsigned binding design likely by Edwin Austin Abbey in brown over gold on olive green diagonally ribbed cloth. Includes frontispiece and over 130 illustrations from wood engravings by William Hamilton Gibson and Frederic Dielman. An idyllic tale of human love set among the changing seasons on a farm in the Hudson Highlands. Originally published as an 1884 story series in Harper's Magazine. A stunning binding design that contains similar design elements as Fly-Rods and Fly-Tackle. Nature's Serial Story and Fly-Rods and Fly-Tackle have similar Arts and Crafts inspired waving lines that provide the illusion of moving water, and were released together with Edwin Austin Abbey's memorable Arts and Crafts inspired binding design for Sketching Rambles in Holland by Harper as holiday books in 1885. All three books were bound in what Harper's called "illuminated cloth". As the Arts and Crafts font for Nature's Serial Song and and Sketching Rambles in Holland are very similar and the books have the same general feel, and as Abbey was actively designing covers for Harper at the time, Austin Abbey Rare Books is provisionally attributing the binding design of Nature's Serial Story to Edwin Austin Abbey pending additional research. -- Austin Abbey Rare Books.
