On Call Day 2017, 11 MLC graduates—including Gina Radue (Mt. Calvary-Waukesha WI, pictured)—were assigned or reassigned to teach science and/or math at a Lutheran high school.
Many of our Lutheran schools are exploring curricula that focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) or STEAM (the same—with the addition of arts) to prepare their students for a global economy that increasingly requires proficiency in these areas.
Although MLC already has secondary education majors in math, chemistry, physics, and life science, Initiative 2.4 directs MLC to redesign the three science majors to include a STEAM emphasis.
Here, as always, the question we are asking is this: What can we do to best serve our WELS churches and schools
