Summary: The authors argue the importance of integrating Science Technology Engineering and
Math (STEM) during students early childhood years. The research found not only are children at
this age capable of STEM learning, but it is critical that they begin having these sort of
experiences in the classroom that are centered around problem solving and critical thinking. In
addition, there is an important correlation between literacy development and STEM, as the skills
developed in STEM instruction benefit cognitive growth across the curriculum. The authors also
address common STEM stigma and rebuts these with a challenge to educators and parents alike
to develop a growth mindset for the benefit of their students, while considering the students’
developmental needs. Technology is continuing to advance; the authors assert it is all the more
critical to exceed the standard and for educators to be bold in owning their responsibility to equip
the becoming leaders of their communities.

Title of Article: “Virtual Classrooms: How Online College Course Affect Student Success”
Author(s): Eric P. Bettinger, Lindsay Fox, Susanna Loeb, & Eric S. Taylor
Journal Name: American Economic Association
Date of Article: September 2017
Summary: This study compared online and in-class courses in regards to how each affect
student success. The data was collected from undergraduate students at a for-profit university,
where each course at the university is offered both online and in-class, although the location of
the classes vary from campus to campus. Variables considered in this study included: proximity
to campus, course availability, students’ physical characteristics, as well as previously reported
GPA. The study finds online courses result in lower student performance. Yet, despite these
findings online courses may be the most accessible to a broad range of students, as some desired
courses may not be available at a student’s home campus. However, student achievement is
highly correlated to the face-to-face interaction within a traditional classroom.

inclusiveness is critical to student success. The author’s provide extensive resources and
recommendations to the reader that encourage curriculum developed mindful of the needs of all
students, both academic and human needs alike. The phrase “humanistic pedagogy” is used to
articulate a teaching philosophy that includes teaming with the students’ families to celebrate
family heritage, and aiming to know your students on a personal level, in order to provide a safe
and effective learning environment. In addition, creating a school-wide approach to addressing
the students’ needs is crucial, while also utilizing resources outside of the school, such as
community figures, and organizations for partnership.
