2024 Science Storylining Workshops!

Three-dimensional learning that incorporates the disciplinary core ideas, the science practices and the cross-cutting concepts is the driving force for improving the student learning experience. In order to better integrate the different topics typically taught in the high school classroom, storyline units that are coherent and phenomenon-driven have been created so that students can make sense of how science works in real world situations. Participants will engage in an immersion in a life science storyline to see firsthand how storylines engage students and will reflect on the implementation and assessment of the Three Dimensions.

Science Storylining for Coherent Instruction




Teaching & Learning

The All Species Education Consulting group includes nationally recognized, award-winning educators who are highly trained in the implementation of three-dimensional learning. We strive to illustrate the effectiveness of using phenomenon and natural student curiosity to drive instruction and build coherence throughout your science course.


We offer a host of practical professional development opportunities that will allow educators and school leaders to better understand the effective implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards and three-dimensional learning. We have successfully developed model units and lessons that can provide a clear picture of the fundamental shift necessary in today’s science classrooms.


Our consultation goals are based on a needs assessment, but can include to

  • Provide guidance for implementing the new science standards for your state, based on the Framework for K-12 Science Education and/or the Next Generation Science Standards,

  • Lead teachers through a three-dimensional learning experience that demonstrates how to use phenomena to drive instruction, and/or

  • Allow teachers to analyze authentic student work to better understand three-dimensional assessments are utilized.

people and animals 


The mission of the All Species Consulting Consortium is to use our collective experience to enhance the welfare, ensure choices and promote the use of naturalistic behaviors in the lives and environments of animals in human care.  We also strive to make meaningful connections between people and animals through quality education programs.


Through individual and/or collective presentations and consultations, we aim to provide valuable information that can be used on a regular basis to increase the positive aspects of the lives of the animals in your care.
