Framing Engineering – Templates to aid in instructional design (Curriculum Exchange). Nancy Ruzycki Materials Science and Engineering, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611-6400Framing routines are a widely used literacy strategy to support students in the organization of topics, mainideas and details of information. Framing techniques can be used to support teachers in the design ofengineering curriculum into the K12 classroom. In this session, several framing templates will bepresented. Some templates presented were designed by school districts in Florida, while others weredeveloped by the author. These easy to use tools have been presented to, and tested by teachersduring curriculum development, and have been found to allow teachers to design their own engineeringactivity within their classrooms based on the specific need of the teacher. Several examples of teacherdesigned lessons using the templates will be presented.
