At this school, the arts, in addition to leadership and communication skills, are integrated into curriculum. The Collaborative’s training embraces the school’s goals and includes teachers from the arts, science, math, English Language Arts, and social studies. The Collaborative helps these teachers effectively integrate their curriculum using science and arts intersections. This is made possible through the teachers’ participation in the Collaborative’s research-based online STEAM PD and through mentoring as the teachers develop, implement, and assess their STEAM-based curriculum.
At the school, the course is facilitated by Rebekka Stasny, Rowlett Science Department Head. She is a member of the Collaborative’s STEAM Effective Practices Teacher Advisory Panel and is a 2020 graduate of the Collaborative's STEAM PD. Like Ms. Stasny, selected teachers currently being trained will become mentors for cohorts who follow them.
This training is an example of the STEAM PD that the Collaborative is offering to schools and school districts.
