Innovators don’t invent without a deep understanding of how the world works. With this foundation, they apply conceptual understanding to solve new problems. We want our students to not only retain ideas, but relate them to other things they encounter, using each new situation to add nuance and sophistication to their thinking. To do this, they need conceptual understanding.

This book serves as a road map for Concept-Based teaching. Discover how to help students uncover conceptual relationships and transfer them to new situations. Specifically, teachers will learn:

  • Strategies for introducing conceptual learning to students
  • Four lesson frameworks to help students uncover conceptual relationships
  • How to assess conceptual understanding, and
  • How to differentiate concept-based instruction
