NSTA Virtual Conference: The Crosscutting Concepts as Lenses to Explore Phenomena, February 8, 2020 (10am-2pm)
Crosscutting concepts are sometimes the neglected dimension of the NGSS and other standards based on the Framework for K-12 Science Education. But crosscutting concepts can provide students a useful lens for making sense of phenomena. They include patterns; cause and effect; scale, proportion, and quantity; systems and system models; energy and matter; structure and function; and stability and change. Join us on Saturday, February 8, starting at 10 am Eastern, to learn how crosscutting concepts can be used as lenses to explore phenomena.
By the end of this virtual conference, participants will be able to:
Construct an explanation of why crosscutting concepts are valuable tools for students as they make sense of phenomena.
Analyze students learning in a specific disciplinary context to determine the role crosscutting concepts played in their learning.
Explain how student’s understanding of the crosscutting concepts can be assessed.
