Using the BSCS 5E Instructional Model to Introduce STEM Disciplines
This editorial uses the BSCS 5E Instructional Model to answer several basic questions—How can I introduce STEM disciplines? How can I integrate STEM disciplines? How can I address my state standards? Begin with a problem or project that has relevance and meaning for students and potential connections to STEM disciplines. Teach the students about the STEM disciplines – what they are, how they are similar, how they are different, and how they relate to one another within the context of investigations.
