Capstone Project Title
Jana Lo Bello Miller
Every student’s understanding of the world is formed from the interactions they experience and observe of which the relationships they build with their peers affect both. The guide created in this project serves as an answer to the question: What are the effects of teaching collaborative learning strategies to teachers in the high school STEM classroom on student adaptability and transferable skills development? The guide itself is oriented towards STEM teachers but includes activities and advice that can be transferred across disciplines. Furthermore, the guide is written informally which allows for the information and activities presented to feel more relatable as opposed to rigid like one might find in a textbook. Outside of encouraging teachers to try new strategies the guide also discusses the effectiveness of the strategies on the development of skills associated with adaptability in the context of academic, social, and professional skills and how they can be transferred outside of the classroom. The goal of the project is to get new teachers and veteran teachers to try strategies that can be considered daunting in the pursuit of providing students with meaningful experiences that can assist them in their development of skills needed in and out of the classroom.
