1 CTE is Your STEM Strategy for STEM Recognition Career and Technical Education 2014 Summer Conference

2 NC STEM Recognition NC DPI Acknowledges NC STEM Learning Network in collaboration with The NC Science, Mathematics and Technology Education Center and The Friday Institute at North Carolina State University for their collaboration and the development of this rubric. Recommended citation for this rubric: Friday Institute for Educational Innovation (2013). Middle School STEM Implementation Rubric. Raleigh, NC: Author

3 CTE? STEM? …emphasize a need for business and educators to join efforts to ensure students are appropriately prepared for emerging workplaces in our communities …leaders agree support and goals are needed to ensure a workforce is prepared for the high-skill, high-wage, and high- demand jobs of a knowledge-based and innovative economy …prepare human resources to add the value that customers around the world desire …a vision that leverages public and private resources in the most effective manner possible, moving North Carolina further and faster toward a world-class workforce and sustained economic growth and development in a global market …visions propelling similar goals and outcomes

4 Co-equally Connected STEM and CTE strategies provide robust educational opportunities to prepare our future workforce, leaders, and next generation of innovators. …globally competitive workforce K-12 and beyond

5 STEM Priority Developed the NC STEM Strategic Plan Defined STEM Education Outlined 11essential Attributes Created a STEM Implementation Rubric Implemented Anchor and Affinity Network Themed Schools Developed NC STEM Recognition Program

6 NC STEM Education Identified and Defined Three Principles –Integrated STEM Curriculum aligned to Industry Standards –On-going Community and Industry Engagement –Connections with Postsecondary Education

7 STEM Organized around the Engineering Design Process/Engineering Connections Anchors to content in the areas of science, technology, and mathematics complements courses in the Arts, Career and Technical Education, English Language Arts, Healthful Living, Music, Social Studies, and World Languages STEM… L & L is applied in an integrated manner, interwoven throughout and advance all content areas with assessment and exhibition of STEM skills

8 Quality STEM Education Responsibility Problem solving Adaptability Collaboration/ teamwork Technology use Oral/written communications Creativity Critical thinking Professionalism Ethics Music World Languages Language Arts Social Studies Art 21 st Century Skills M S E T Healthful Living CTE Entrepreneurial spirit

9 Attributes: Vision of STEM School Integrated Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) curriculum, aligned with state, national, international and industry standards 1) Project-based learning with integrated content across STEM subjects 2) Connections to effective in-and out-of-school STEM programs 3) Integration of technology and virtual learning 4) Authentic assessment and exhibition of STEM skills 5) Professional development on integrated STEM curriculum, community/industry partnerships and postsecondary education connections 6) Outreach, support and focus on underserved, especially females, minorities, and economically disadvantaged On-going community and industry engagement 7) A communicated STEM plan is adopted across education, communities and businesses 8) STEM work-based learning experiences, to increase interest and abilities in fields requiring STEM skills, for each student and teacher 9) Business and community partnerships for mentorship, internship and other STEM opportunities that extend the classroom walls Connections with postsecondary education 10) Alignment of student’s career pathway with post-secondary STEM program(s) 11) Credit completion at community colleges, colleges and/or universities * Attributes define essential components central to STEM & 21st Century Skills * Not required for Elementary or Middle Schools - For High Schools Only

11 STEM Courses Aerospace, Security, Advanced Manufacturing Fundamentals of Flight Material Science and Electrical Applications Automation Security Health and Life Sciences Biomedical Systems I Biomedical Systems II Biomaterials, Statics, & Strengths of Materials Neuroscience Agri-science and Biotechnology Agricultural Ecology Agricultural Genetics Agricultural Biotechnology Agricultural Solutions Energy and Sustainability Foundations Planetary Boundaries Human Impacts Paths to Global Solutions Aligns & complements CTE Career Clusters and our economic drivers

12 What is STEM Education  strategy to build a world-class workforce that leads to graduation, postsecondary education, and careers in our global economy  integrates S, T, E, M enabling students to understand complex societal problems through project and problem based leading & learning to prepare our next generation of innovators  aligns with the SCoS and is a critical complement to courses in the Arts, Career and Technical Education, English Language, Healthful Living, Music, Social Studies, and World Languages, and Out-of-School programs  sustainability through leadership developing & delivering effective quality instructional materials through relevant connections

13 Why STEM? Why CTE? Strategic Plan: as an economic imperative to: Transform education Build world class workforce Align with emerging industries Ensure NC economic prosperity prepare our next generation of innovators ensure our citizens are learning the skills that will keep their communities globally competitive.

14 Common Threads STEM and CTE

15 CTE is Your STEM Strategy Kate Blosveren, Associate Executive Director, NASDCTEc states in CTE is Your STEM Strategy, December 2013 CTE programs provide: a strong foundation, is an effective tool, and serve as a delivery system of implementing STEM competencies and skills for a broader range of students, Stakeholders--inherent connection and overlap in goals and content of STEM and CTE

16 CTE is Your STEM Strategy CTE may not address everything within a STEM strategy, but policymakers, educators shouldn’t be reinventing the wheel Areas where CTE and STEM programs can learn from and strengthen one another STEM is naturally embedded across the 16 Career Clusters®

17 Ramp Up  Commitment to integrate engineering design principles K-12  Interest and prepare our workforce by providing real-world lessons that Enables the development of a set of thinking, reasoning, collaborative teamwork, and skills students can use in all areas of their lives

18 Connecting the Dots Recognizing Exemplar STEM Leadership and Learning

19 CTE and STEM Problem-based/project-based learning Integrate/Cross-disciplinary Use technology Business & Education Partnerships Secondary-postsecondary alignment/career and college readiness

20 STEM Recognition An application process to recognize exemplary STEM schools and STEM programs –Articulates a common language for implementation –Built around a Implementation Rubric –Outlines critical strengths “Attributes” –Describes characteristics of high quality STEM school/program application located at:

21 Schools and Programs …demonstrating evidence and implementing all eleven* Attributes of a quality STEM program at the “Prepared” or “Model” level using the STEM Implementation Rubric will be recognized. *11 Attributes apply to high schools 10 Attributes apply to elementary and middle schools

22 Application and Guide Choose to apply as either: STEM School is an entire school focused on integration of disciplinary areas of S, T, E, M plus other program areas as needed to carry out the theme(s) of the school. STEM Program is organized as a small learning community to provide support of an educational program for STEM career cluster(s). STEM programs (academies) functions as a small school within a comprehensive school.
