High school students learn to teach desert ecology to kindergarten students. A STEM teacher provides students with "real-world scenarios" to teach them how to solve problems under pressure. See how one school enlists students, teachers and staff to create a comprehensive Bully Prevention Plan. Amazing Classroom - Teaching Field Ecology - Over several days, Cindy Zacks coaches her high school students through an activity that will culminate with them teaching a 45 minute lesson to a group of kindergartners. Students choose a learning objective and plan their lesson and activities. Watch how the kindergartners react to the lessons they've planned. Amazing Classrooms - Problem Solving Under Pressure - John Santos, STEM teacher at the Images, Science, and Technology Academy (ISTA) pushes students to become college and career ready with 21st century skills. A variety of science, technology, and engineering concepts and tools are utilized in this rigorous program including graphic design, manufacturing, digital design, engineering, applied math, and physics. Some of the 21st century skills addressed include critical thinking, real-world scenarios in which students have "one shot" to solve a problem that could have a catastrophic impact, reverse engineering, and working as a team. Bullying - Creating Rules and Rubrics to prevent Bullying - Based on data gathered from students, Saint Philip's School has identified specific areas in which they need to improve their response to bullying among students.
