Are you an educator working to enhance your knowledge of the crosscutting concepts and how they can be leveraged to strengthen science and engineering learning in K-12 classrooms?
In this four-seminar series, participants explore the crosscutting concepts as one of the three dimensions described in the Framework and the Next Generation Science Standards, and their critical role for science teaching and learning. Particular attention will be given to how the crosscutting concepts can serve as tools to make sense of phenomena and design solutions to problems and how they can broaden access to science for all students.
NSTA has developed an Online Book Study around the book, Crosscutting Concepts: Strengthening Science and Engineering Learning. This book clarifies how the crosscutting concepts are an essential part of three-dimensional learning. The book also provides a wealth of ideas for instruction and examples taken from classrooms to show the power of crosscutting concepts across science and engineering disciplines and across grade bands or levels.
During the online book study, educators attend live web seminars and participate in asynchronous discussions with the presenters, Kate Soriano, Jessica Holman, and Brianna Reilly. The web seminars support use of the book to deepen participants’ understanding of the crosscutting concepts.
During the book study participants have access to:
- A moderated private forum for group discussions with other book study participants
- Digital resources and all NSTA online community tools (My Library, My Profile, Discussion Forums)
- All archive versions of the web seminars to watch on-demand.
About the Book
You can order Crosscutting Concepts: Strengthening Science and Engineering Learning by Jeffrey Nordine and Okhee Lee (eds.) and use the promo code (CCC20) to receive a 20% discount. The central goal of this book is to clarify the nature and potential of CCCs to strengthen science and engineering teaching and learning. Note: The registration fee below DOES NOT include the book. The book must be purchased separately.
