“STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. ” On January 25-26, 2018 BMS teachers and principal, Dr. Ayesha Hunter, attended and presented their STEAM expertise at the South Carolina Council Teachers of English Annual Conference: “Out of the Silos: Literacy in a Transdisciplinary Age”. Math teachers, Shannon Griffin and Carol Nesbitt, presented “Word Up!” Attendees of their presentation were actively engaged in a problem solving-activity to demonstrate how content area teachers can help all students use reading strategies to make connections across the content areas. Social Studies teacher, Erik Booker, presented “Analyzing the Speeches of Hitler and Stalin: Scaffolding the Seemingly Impossible”. Attendees learned how to use deliberate scaffolding and technology to enable their students to analyze primary source material and write a persuasive speech in the same style. This year’s theme “Out of the Silos: Literacy in a Transdisciplinary Age” calls on teachers to traverse discipline-specific boundaries and work together to create educational experiences that will encourage students to develop responsible and critical literacy practices.
