Today in this 21st century, educators’ primary challenges focused on trying to keep the lessons real for students and struggling with better integrating STEM and Sign Language. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), are emphasizing the integration of STEM into the curriculum. They found that the greatest challenge that teachers face is making explicit connections between STEM fields while balancing the need for context and student engagement.
