K-12 Architecture Education: An Interdisciplinary Curriculum Guide for Art, Design Educators, STEM and Vocational/Technical Teachers (Paperback)
This curriculum guide provides hands-on activities that integrate Architecture as a theme for instruction and as an ideal springboard to engage students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Each activity integrates Interdisciplinary Strategies, Critical Thinking, Rubrics and Portfolio Assessment using a performance-based approach in which students learn by discovery. The guide can be an invaluable tool for educational institutions and non-profit organizations to develop innovative educational programs that promote project-based education. In addition to engaging students in STEM, the guide presents Architecture as an art discipline and how the design process in Architecture can be seen as another problem-solving method.
