dc.description.abstractTo think more productively about the role of crosscutting concepts (CCCs) and how they influence students’ three-dimensional science understandings of phenomena, we took a hermeneutic approach to examine the literature and language of the Next Generation Science Standards and its supporting documents. Using the perspective of Lakoff and Johnson (2003)’s conceptual metaphors, our analysis identified a set of four metaphorical perspectives – CCCs AS LENSES, CCCs AS BRIDGES, CCCs AS TOOLS, and CCCs AS RULES – that the texts use to describe the role of CCCs in three-dimensional science learning. We discuss the affordances and limitations of each perspective, their implications for instruction and assessment design, and directions for future research.en_US
