Writing for Technical Subjects Room 404

STEAM is great, but what happens when the engineers can’t write about their inventions? How many opportunities are lost because a person with great technical skills can’t communicate with their colleagues about their ideas? Lets talk about how we add more technical writing to our classrooms.

Common Core standards dramatically increase the amount of technical literacy happening in our classrooms. Come build the lessons that will get students practicing their STEAM skills and their writing skills too.
