NSTA Virtual Conference Archive: Exploring Three-Dimensional Instruction, February 11, 2017

The "three dimensions," as envisioned in A Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), are transform science education at every level. Join NSTA for a virtual conference that explores the instructional shifts and what they mean for your classroom.

This four-hour experience opens with a general exploration of three-dimensional teaching and learning—including an overview of the NGSS and its architecture, as well as an introduction to the science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and crosscutting concepts. Participants then have the opportunity to join self-selected breakout sessions by grade and discipline (elementary, secondary life science, secondary physical science, secondary Earth and space science). The last session again offers participants a choice between two discussions—teachers sharing their classroom implementation journeys or administrators explaining how they have supported their teachers on those journeys.

Whether your state has formally adopted the NGSS or has adopted similar three-dimensional standards, this virtual conference offers a strong foundation on which to build your implementation efforts.
