Reading dominates instructional time in preschool through second grade to the extent of eliminating engineering experiences for children at a time crucial in forming STEM identities. This session will illustrate how daily early engineering experiences do not impede, but enhance literacy development in reading, writing, listening, speaking, and viewing.  The featured speaker for this webinar is Beth Van Meeteren, a veteran early childhood classroom teacher of 24 years with an M.A. in Literacy and an Ed.D. in Curriculum and Instruction.
