What STEM is and What it Isn’t

October 18, 2017

STEM provides a wonderful opportunity to organize and integrate a significant part of the curriculum. The multi-year and cross-disciplinary nature of STEM makes it ideal for spiraling the curriculum from grade to grade, increasing depth and understanding along the way. A primarily hands-on STEM initiative develops both somatic and cognitive skills.

On the other hand, without thoroughly understanding what STEM is, there is a significant danger of “softening” the science and math component of the curriculum and producing a hodgepodge of experiences lacking clear intellectual grounding and cognitive direction. 

What STEM Is: We will discuss the advantages of approaching STEM education in a systematic, school-wide, spiraling whole-curriculum manner. 

What STEM Isn’t: You will be prepared to recognize the pitfalls of failed STEM strategies.

Soul of Youth Sports: The Coachable Athlete

October 19, 2017

A coach is often one of the most influential figures in the life of a young person. Life lessons taught through the lens of sports are those that form young people and stick with them forever.  It is a great blessing and responsibility to work with coachable athletes; those who may not step onto the field or court with all the natural ability, but will work to improve as a whole person – spiritually, physically and mentally.  This session will give coaches, athletic directors or club leaders, tangible strategies to form faithful young men and women to be leaders on and off the playing field.
