Engaging Diverse Learners in STEM Subjects
A briefing paper from the Southeast Comprehensive Center investigates ways to improve access to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education opportunities for diverse learners. Suggestions include:
- Increase children’s early exposure to math and science learning opportunities in and out of school.
- Modify teacher preparation programs to provide deep content knowledge and requisite pedagogical skills to help increase the number of high-quality math and science teachers.
- Use professional learning communities to enhance teacher instructional practice and improve student achievement in math and science.
- Increase exposure and access to STEM education opportunities for groups that are underrepresented in STEM fields and careers.
