STEM-Language Arts Teaching/learning Ecosystems (SLATE)

  • students on computer

The SLATE program (STEM-Language Arts Teaching/learning Ecosystems), funded by a $3.5 million award from the U.S. Department of Education, is a multi-tiered program that will support New Hampshire middle and high school students learning STEM-related topics. The program supplies enrichment training to teachers and establishes a peer mentoring program for students, focusing largely on English learners, students often underrepresented in the STEM field.

Multilingual students continue to be inadequately represented in STEM in college and in the workforce. The goal of SLATE is to find ways to provide students the assistance they need for communicating and understanding the scientific curriculum in order to gain interest and, ultimately, succeed in STEM fields.

SLATE is being implemented with the UNH NH Literacy Institutes and UNH’s Community Literacy Center, in partnership with the UNH STEM Discovery Lab, in the Manchester school system and then eventually broadened across the state.
