Using Phenomena to Engage Students in the Science and Engineering Practices

64:43 Minutes

If the Disciplinary Core Ideas are what scientists know, and the Crosscutting Concepts are the way scientists think, then the Science and Engineering Practices describe what scientists do. And what they do—asking questions, carrying out investigations, analyzing data, constructing explanations—is anchored in phenomena. In this webinar John Galisky will discuss what kind of phenomena are good for the classroom and how to use them effectively.
