This two-day workshop focuses on developing deep understanding of three-dimensional design by giving them a powerful tool kit of resources including the interactive e-book Discover the NGSS: Primer and Unit Planner.

Workshop Objectives

  • Conduct an investigation where participants actively engage in science and engineering practices in the context of explaining a phenomenon or designing a solution to a problem in order to understand the essential features of all three dimensions (Practices, Core Ideas, and Crosscutting Concepts) and why all three dimensions must be integrated for effective instruction.
  • Construct an evidenced-based argument on how to use phenomena to generate student questions to motivate student sense making and support three-dimensional teaching and learning of the targeted core ideas.
  • Analyze a lesson's potential to support three-dimensional teaching and learning by building on student's prior knowledge, providing students opportunities to express their ideas, and helping students see how the lesson fits coherently into the overall unit of instruction.

All participants receive
