Engaging Students in STEM: STEM Starters

Sentence starters are being used more in Science/STEM classes to help students build language proficiency and to incorporate higher levels of academic language into their writing.  They help students learn how to formulate complex statements that are supported with facts and evidence.

Students learn from the teacher as he/she is modelling how to write sentences that make a claim and are supported by evidence but, how will students remember to write sentences like that unless they are constantly being exposed to that content?

By either posting a list of STEM Starters in the classroom or taping them in STEM Notebooks, students can refer to them to build their language skills while they learn how to convey their knowledge about science.
