What's the Big Idea? Framing Science with Crosscutting Concepts

How do you think about the world? What dimensions or concepts are most salient? Join Jay Staker and Bob Horton for an intriguing discussion of big ideas and crosscutting concepts and the role they can play in what we observe, what we wonder about, and what we teach and learn. This webinar is a dialogue about the crosscutting concepts defined in the new "A Framework for K-12 Science" and their importance in informal science learning (and other disciplines as well!). Adding them to our teaching and facilitation can support content learning as well as innovation, inquiry, and self-directed learning.
