This article discusses how to use storylines to foster three-dimensional learning. In summary, the article explains how we can use storylines to get kids interested in phenomena outside of an eye-catching experiment. The article states that we can use this to keep kids interest by providing a storyline that is engaging and allows for the exploration of everyday phenomena such as falling objects. The article also lists out how we can unpack such a heavy task of creating a story to go along with the science lesson. They do this by showing us how to pick a driving question which I find extremely helpful. It is also interesting how we can use storylines to help kids connect ideas into other categories and cross-cutting subjects. I also like this as a way to organize what you want to be teaching the student. As a new teacher, it can be daunting to make sure your lesson objectives line up with what you’re actually teaching and I feel like this helps to that in an awesome way that allows for kids to get more out of their learning.
