new ways to present core concepts

I think there are already a lot of great materials and tools that link practices, core concepts and cross cutting concepts – we just have never explicitly talked about it before nor have we had to look for ways to do that.  The Standards help. Content has always been king, and our tests, PD and support has reminded us that many of us are not “fully qualified” to teach science – so we focus on the content.  In this new world that has changed, and not just for elementary but for middle and high school as well.  I want to find new ways to look at all sides of a core concept and see how to present/engage students with it using the science and engineering practices and cross cutting concepts.   Has anybody started trying this?  Do you do this in your classrooms?  How do you do it in PD?  Any examples would help…
