This website provides video-based suggestions & resources for educating students so they may self-direct research-informed & negotiated action (RiNA) projects to overcome harms (e.g., pollution) of their choice in relationships among fields of science & technology and societies & environments (STSE).

STEPWISE PEDAGOGY

[The 3 phases in the model below are clickable]

Background

Students Acting for All was developed by our team of school science teachers who have used STEPWISE-informed pedagogy for several years and university-based educational researchers who, collectively, drew from our Resources – such as Science Education for Civic Action, linked at right/below – and elsewhere. Many ideas also came from STSE Harms & STEPWISE, in Detail.

Teachers wanting to use our resources may collaborate with us in action research – which can improve student learning, motivations, civic actions, etc. and contribute greatly to teachers’ professional development, such as through curriculum development and through educational publications.
