SSM Special Issue on Integrated STEM Education

The School Science and Mathematics Journal editorial staff requests the submission of manuscripts for an upcoming special issue on Integrated STEM Education. In a growing era of STEM related policy, research, and practice, there is an emerging need to disseminate cutting edge educational research focused on Integrated STEM Education in PK-20. In particular, we are seeking manuscripts on integrated STEM in the following areas:

.  Implications of STEM related policy at the federal, state, or local levels
.  Studies of teachers and or schools/districts implementing Integrated STEM programs and/or themed schools
.  Early childhood Integrated STEM experiences
.  Integration of STEM careers into K-12 curriculum
.  Partnerships between private and public organizations, higher education, and K-12 schools to address regional, state, or national STEM talent shortages
.  Studies of the impact of integrated STEM instruction on student achievement in science and/or mathematics

Manuscripts need to be submitted by June 30, 2013 through the Scholar One website - http://scholarone.com/products/manuscript/

Please indicate in your cover letter that your manuscript is to be considered for the Integrated STEM special issue and submit the paper as an integrated paper. The STEM special issue will be published in early 2014.
