STEM education myths in early grades

from District Administration Magazine

Consider these ideas: Some kids are STEM kids and some aren't. Students need to master science and math basics before moving on to STEM concepts. STEM focuses on future jobs, so educators should concentrate instruction in middle and high school. Wrong, wrong and wrong, say the experts. In fact, such myths contribute to many students’ STEM struggles. Add to these a 2016 study that found kids show up for kindergarten with uneven exposure to science, technology, engineering and math. That gap — which can dog students through middle school — is so real that researchers can more consistently predict future academic achievement based on preschool math abilities than on early reading or attention skills. more
