Crosscutting concepts can help students better understand core ideas in science and engineering. 

Crosscutting concepts can help students better understand science and engineering practices.

Crosscutting concepts can provide a common vocabulary for science and engineering.

Crosscutting concepts should not be assessed separately from science & engineering practices or disciplinary core ideas.

Crosscutting concepts are for all students. 

The more I look at my lessons, the more connections I see with the standards. Dig deeper. Look for connections. Add rigor to the learning. Make your lessons authentic.
