Course Description

Research and Design Curriculum for All Learners

This course explores all students experiencing STEAM curriculum, but particularly students who have not been served well in their STEAM courses. We will explore what systems are currently in place for STEAM courses and how making incremental changes can ensure that all children can be successful in STEAM education. Students will then work to design their own curriculum that provides all students a Low Floor High Ceiling.
