Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction for the Thinking Classroom. Second Edition (Revised Edition). Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction Series
Erickson, H. Lynn; Lanning, Lois A.; French, Rachel
Knowing the facts is not enough. If we want students to develop intellectually, creatively problem-solve, and grapple with complexity, the key is in "conceptual understanding." A Concept-Based curriculum recaptures students' innate curiosity about the world and provides the thrilling feeling of engaging one's mind. This updated edition introduces the newest thought leadership in Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction. Educators will learn how to: meet the demands of rigorous academic standards; use the Structure of Knowledge and Process when designing disciplinary units; engage students in inquiry through inductive teaching; and identify conceptual lenses and craft quality generalizations. Explore deeper levels of learning and become a Master Concept-Based Teacher.
