At STEM School Chattanooga we hope to be able to share with everyone our unit plans that are used at our school. These unit plans consist of each important planning piece for creating our units. This page consists of two curriculum unit plans: PBL Unit Plans (top half of page) and Content Unit Plans (bottom portion of page).
PBL Unit Plans in 14-15
PBL Unit Templates: We have unit plan templates for 9th grade, 10th grade, and 11th grade PBL units. These templates provide an educator with the opportunity to learn what is needed for each piece of developing and implementing a cross-curricular PBL.

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to your own desktop to use as you wish.

STEM education is active and focuses on a student-centered learning environment. Students engage in questioning, problem solving, collaboration, and hands-on activities while they address real life issues. In STEM education, teachers function as classroom facilitators. They guide students through the problem-solving process and plan projects that lead to mastery of content and STEM proficiency. STEM proficient students are able to answer complex questions, investigate global issues, and develop solutions for challenges and real world problems while applying the rigor of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics content in a seamless fashion. STEM proficient students are logical thinkers, effective communicators and are technologically, scientifically, and mathematically literate.
