McDowell Academy for Innovation
MAI Weekly Staff Meeting- meet in cafeteria
Each week, two teachers will report out to the entire group about their STEM efforts.
What they have done and plan to do.
Focus of presentations
The general nature of the lessons
What makes the lessons STEM
Interdisciplinary connections – what are they
Engineering Process application – how was this done
Focus on STEM careers (Science, Math, Health and PE only) – which careers and how presented
For lessons already taught – specific elements that worked well and elements that need to be adjusted (along with ideas how to make the adjustments)
For lessons that are yet to be taught – any elements of the lesson that they think will be the strongest and any elements of the lesson that they are unsure of and are seeking input from others to perhaps enhance the element.
Ideas for other lessons to be developed either this year or next year.
Opportunities for discussion with the faculty during and/or after the presentation
