10 Performance-Based STEM Projects for Grades 6–8 provides 10 ready-made projects designed to help students achieve higher levels of thinking and develop 21st-century skills while learning about science, technology, engineering, and math. Projects are aligned to national standards and feature crosscurricular connections, allowing students to explore and be creative as well as gain an enduring understanding. Each project is linked to national STEM education goals and represents one of a variety of performance assessments, including oral presentations, research papers, and exhibitions. Included for each project are a suggested calendar to allow teachers to easily plan a schedule, mini-lessons that allow students to build capacity and gain an understanding of what they are doing, as well as multiple rubrics that can be used to objectively assess the performance of students. The lessons are laid out in an easy-to-follow format that will allow teachers to implement the projects immediately.

Review by: Lewie Dunn, Georgia Military College - November 23, 2018
This work is for use in the middle grades and if the school district or school system has adopted the Common Core and STEM programs, then this work will tie well with they already have in place also for those who do not use the Common Core or STEM programs, this work will supplement the lesson plans already being used. The work has all the handouts and references to do all ten projects. It is well laid out and offers plenty of instruction on how the educator can complete the entire work in just one school year.
