The concept of 3 dimensional learning as it applies to the NSTA site and the Next Generation Standards seems a bit interesting. With the new way to teach science with the involvement of these three topics, the NSTA should have included a more detail specific explanation of what the 3 dimensions are and how they are applied to the learning of science/ I can  understand how to apply core ideas, practices, and crosscutting to science in the classroom but it would be more helpful in integrating and also assessing any methods used in relation to the concepts. As commented on the site, https://www.activatelearning.com/3-dimensional-learning, it is narrated that someone sees three- dimensional learning as "[shifting] the focus of the science classrooms to environments where students use disciplinary core ideas, crosscutting concepts with scientific practices to explore, examinem and explain how and why phenomena occur and to design solutions to problems."
