Inspire students to embrace and learn STEM with lessons that increase equity and inclusive instruction.

Teachers can improve equity in STEM education by following key principles and features that address the historical marginalization of women and BIPOC communities and reframe traditional instructional practices to be more inclusive of different ways of learning. Following an Understanding by Design Framework, the guide outlines each principle’s desired learning outcomes and performance indicators and provides suggested learning plans. Each principle’s features detail the issues surrounding STEM education inequities and offer new approaches incorporating culturally responsive teaching, improving classroom climates, and applying real-world examples.

Advancing Equity through STEM Education makes the case that equitable teaching can revitalize academic disciplines and help students connect and take ownership of their learning.
