Description

STEM is an intentional, integrative approach to teaching and learning that can occur across all knowledge areas; it is not a specific curriculum. The STEM approach focuses on providing opportunities for students to explore and develop a comprehensive set of concepts, competencies, and thinking skills. In this course, we’ll see how the Supportive Practices found in Learning Standards for early childhood promote the development of STEM concepts, competencies, and thinking skills.

This course is also designed to be part of a Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential™ curriculum. It covers Subject Area 3: Supporting Children’s Social and Emotional Development and Subject Area 8: Understanding Principles of Child Development and Learning.
