This article was very helpful in developing an understanding of how college instructors worked together to ensure that preservice teachers receive the necessary instruction to understand how to implement 3D science teaching. This is key as teachers transition from theory to practice. I would love to hear feedback from anyone that has followed this path and how your experience was once you implemented 3D Science in the classroom once you started teaching.
Hello Valerie,In the article, there was a priority to ensure all college instructors received the appropriate training to implement 3D science teaching. The local school district did not apply the same initiative was not taken when the system started implementing 3D instruction in correlation with the New Generation Science Standards (NGSS). I agree that the key is supporting teachers through the transition from theory to practice. I am looking for more support and resources to utilize in the classroom to properly implement 3D instruction. Currently, I have strengthened my overall understanding of what 3D instruction entails. The core areas of 3-D science instruction are disciplinary core ideas, science and Engineering Practices, and cross-cutting concepts.
