Part 1: Instructional Tools Chart
Instructional tools are very important when it comes to both engagement and to help with developmental growth. Using the “Instructional Tools Chart,” create a descriptive list of five instructional tools that you would consider using in your field experience classroom to enhance STEM/STEAM.
Part 2: Reflection
In a 250-500 word reflection, highlight how the integration of all content areas creates a stronger foundation for learning. Briefly describe how STEM and STEAM differ from one another, and your personal stance on whether you prefer the use of STEM, STEAM, or both in 1st grade education, explaining how the learning environment and individual student needs affect your choice. Reflecting back on the previously created lesson plans you wrote for this course, how would you envision incorporating technology tools and literacy into them?
Support your findings with 2-3 scholarly resources.
