STEM CURRICULUM REVIEW FRAMEWORK (SCRF): A FRAMEWORK FOR K-12 STEM CURRICULA REVIEW
The SCRF outlines the components needed for a comprehensive review of K-12 STEM curricula. In this paper, “STEM education” and “STEM curricula” refers primarily to integrative instruction that aligns curricula across the earth and natural sciences, engineering, and mathematics.
The three components of the SCRF provide educators and curricula developers with a context from which to evaluate the quality of K-12 STEM lessons and activities that: 1) are aligned to common standards and across disciplines, 2) employ best instructional practices, and 3) promote learning for all students through cultural responsive teaching.
Here are the framework resources:
- STEM Curriculum Review Framework White Paper
- STEM Curriculum Review Rubric
- STEM Curriculum Review Guide
- SCRF Summary Sheet
- Cultural Responsive Teaching Addendum and Lesson Update
