New standards require teaching and assessing learning across three dimensions: practices, cross-cutting concepts, and content. For the past seven years, my physics education research group has been working with upper elementary and middle school pre-service teachers in an NGSS state to put effective tools into the hands of practicing teachers. This work combines content learning with explicit instruction on 3-dimensional pedagogical and assessment methods. I am bringing this approach to physical science with me to the University of Nebraska Omaha to prepare future Nebraska teachers for the College and Career Ready Standards for Science. In this presentation, I'll discuss this work and my book "Creating Scientists: Teaching and Assessing Science Practice for the NGSS." As a group, we will go through a 3D activity using magnets as an example of how to integrate content knowledge with science practice and cross-cutting concepts. We'll discuss aspects of the NGSS Lesson Screener and connect the framework to practice via the magnet activity example.
