Candace Hisey @MissHisey talks about true STEM and Language Arts Integration. With both extended and daily projects, students watch science, technology, engineering, and math come alive in all of their classes. Hear how Candace does it in today's Wonderful Wednesday classroom tour and why she'll never go back to the "old" way of teaching.

Today, Candace will teach us about:

  • The incredible element "museum" project where students integrate all subjects and their work in chemistry during tenth grade
  • Flexible teaching time and how she uses it to integrate learning with other teachers
  • Simple ways Candace brings research non-fiction into her language arts class
  • Science Fridays in Language class
  • The most transformational thing Candace has done in her experience in this new form of teaching.

Candace Hisey is a graduate of Baldwin Wallace University and has been teaching Language Arts at Bio-Med Science Academy for three years. She is a strong proponent of interdisciplinary education, and this year she has been working with the chemistry instructor to build an integrated curriculum for tenth grade.
