What does "STEM-FOCUSED" mean?
Learners decide what activities or processes to perform. They collect information from a variety of sources, and then analyze, synthesize, and derive understanding from it. Harmony developed a standards-aligned, cross-disciplinary, multi-sensory model called STEM Students on the Stage (STEM SOS) that integrates three core subject areas: a STEM subject, social studies, and English language arts. The cross-curricular connections and hands-on learning deepen students’ understanding of topics they choose while allowing teachers to more actively engage their students in new ways of learning.
