An important step toward the implementation of the three dimensions of the Next Generation Science Standards is to be intentional about teaching the 3 Dimensions of the NGSS:
- The Science & Engineering Practices
- The Crosscutting Concepts
- The Disciplinary Core Ideas
Sometimes as teachers and students we need a public reminder of what we are trying to implement. Project Neuron at the University of Illinois has a nicely formatted set of small posters on the 3 Dimensions of the NGSS that can be printed off and used in the classroom. There are 2 versions of the posters- sets with subtitles and sets with just the names of the SEPs, CCCs and DCIs. Click HERE to see the posters.
