CRDG recently published this video that introduces the crosscutting concepts. This is the first video in a series about the crosscutting concepts.
The crosscutting concepts are the thinking tools that scientists use to understand science. Look for future posts about applying the crosscutting concepts graphic organizer to different phenomena.
I developed a graphic organizer for the crosscutting concepts that is helpful to organize thinking about studentsʻ’ thinking about phenomena.
In professional learning, teachers use the CCC statements from Appendix G and apply relevant elements to their phenomena to develop explanatory ideas.
