From STEM to STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, ART, and Math.
Strategies to attract STEM students to World culture courses and engage them in their content. In the arts, as in science, meaning comes from perpetual inquiry, making the World culture classroom the ideal environment for connecting disciplines. Students can engage in classroom activities, presentations, and projects at the curricular level and in specific courses that allow them to combine their disciplinary interests and the World culture course content, fostering critical thinking and enhanced learning. Curricular design, lesson planning, and assessment that support this integrated approach are discussed in the context of the history of visual culture in France.
