STEM Enrichment Time
STEM Enrichment Time (SET) program is designed to help students develop key skills required to be successful in technology driven careers. Our STEM projects challenge students to develop deep understanding of scientific concepts and practice critical thinking to analyze work.
Salient Learning has developed a comprehensive curriculum that consists of a unique blend of instructor led lessons, hands on group activities and student presentations. The curriculum uses topics and skills drawn from national science standards to prepare students for more advanced science courses and new assessments that measure reasoning, reading comprehension, and writing in science. First, teacher introduces the topic and students read lessons that include a variety of charts, tables, and graphs. Then, they answer critical thinking questions to improve their understanding of the science concepts and develop their reading comprehension, and inferential and deductive thinking skills. Students can’t just scan the story for answers—they must carefully analyze and synthesize the information from the text and the charts, tables, and graphs to explain and support their answers.
