Questions for STEM Lessons

This list of questions is one that I found at the ScalingSTEM conference in March of 2013. While at the conference I attended a session on "Designs Across Curricula Humanities and STEM", presented by Isaac Lake of NC New Schools. The session had a ton of great ideas and resources, the questions below were most relevant to me. You can download the original document and other resources at https://sites.google.com/a/newschoolsproject.org/cif-math/stem.


Designs across Curricula - Questions to Guide Analysis

  1. What is this thing?
  2. What does it do (or what is it supposed to do?)
  3. How is it designed to do that?
  4. What are its component parts?
  5. How do they work together?
  6. How well do they work together? (Is is a good design?)


STEM/Humanities Crosswalk Questions

  1. What is the history of this topic or issue?
  2. What role, if any, does government play?
  3. What is the law regarding this issue?
  4. What are the politics of this issue?
  5. What ethical questions arise? (Has the issue been controversial, and if so, why?)
  6. How can students research, argue persuasively, or otherwise communicate about this issue?
  7. What relevant literature or other art may there be?
  8. What opportunities may there be for community outreach or service learning?
