Description

In STEAM curriculum, there is a general disconnect from what students have to learn and what they want to know. This can be a frustration for many teachers within STEAM, by two accounts (1) every teacher wants their students to succeed in their class and (2) students on occasion don’t find what the teacher is passionate about interesting. A differentiated approach to this is to present scientific findings and problem-solving skills through the act of storytelling, which is known in the academic community as storylining. The purpose for this research is to find a learning approach that is found to impact all students and be able to communicate scientific findings and methods for greater understanding. In this research, field notes were taken and participants were of a local public school, ranging from different backgrounds and cultures. The main goal for this research is to outline exactly how other teachers implementing STEAM curriculum can integrate storylining into their curriculum for increased productivity, engagement, and overall greater understanding for the students who need a differentiated learning approach.
