About the Authors | Comments
This practical, hands-on guide shows K-12 school leaders how to support STEM programs that excite students and teachers—even if the leader is not an expert in science, technology, engineering, or math.
Buckner and Boyd explore ideas for fostering equitable access to rich and rigorous learning experiences, acting as instructional leaders, and building community engagement and partnerships.
You'll get advice on creating a structure to help teachers examine, discuss, and improve students' learning experiences. And you'll learn how to support teachers in designing challenging lessons that foster students' curiosity and ingenuity in working on real-world problems.
Finally, you’ll learn ways you can effectively tap into the wealth of resources in your community to help achieve your STEM vision.
