Program abstract
Three-dimensional teaching and learning features a shift in focus from having students learn about science to figuring out phenomena. This web seminar will explore how to select phenomena and use them to motivate student sense making. This is one of a series of web seminars providing teachers advice on implementing the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) or other three-dimensional science standards based on the Framework for K-12 Science Education.

A certificate of attendance was deposited into participants' My Profile area in the NSTA Learning Center for completing the evaluation form at the end of the program.
