Our STEAM curriculum integrates the five content areas, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics, while naturally incorporating Reading, Writing, and History throughout the entire school day. The STEAM content areas are embedded in the core subjects of Language Arts and Mathematics, they are not taught in isolation. Lake View teachers have been trained in the Buck Institute Project-based Learning lesson design model (PBL). Throughout the units of study, the lessons focus on a global question. For example “How do we make sure we have enough water to bring us to the next century?” Utilizing the 5E lesson design of Engaging, Exploring, Explaining, Elaborating, and Evaluating what they learn, the students will conduct investigations, explore real world scenarios, and develop ideas in order to answer the posing questions and problems.
