Facilitated by ASTA, Sara Torres will walk through how sense-making in science occurs with the integration of three essential dimensions. The focus of this professional learning opportunity is to learn how the crosscutting concepts cross boundaries between science disciplines and provide an organizational framework to connect knowledge from various disciplines into a coherent and scientifically based view of the world. Participants will gain an understanding on how crosscutting concepts bridge boundaries between science and other disciplines as well as connect core ideas and practices throughout the fields of science and engineering. Crosscutting concepts provides a lens to help students deepen their understanding of the core ideas as they make sense of phenomena in the natural and designed worlds. Participants will be provided tools to share their learning with their colleagues.
