STEM Article Synthesis
Read the following collection of articles. Although these articles are very different, there are common threads within them that should be relevant to us as STEM educators. After reading the articles, your task is to write a summary for each article (about 1/2 page for each summary, double-spaced, 12 point font) and then to produce an analytical synthesis (about 1 page, double-spaced, 12 point font) in which you identify one or two common threads of the articles and explain how the thread or threads is meaningful to you as a STEM educator. This will be submitted to a CourseDen assignment dropbox. Zouda, M. (2016). Deconstructing STEM: A reading through the postmodern condition.
