A cutting-edge model for 21st century curriculum and instruction

How can you spot a thinking child? Look at the eyes: they’ll light up, signaling that transformative moment when your student has finally grasped that big idea behind critical academic content. If experiences like this are all too rare in your school, then you need a curriculum and instruction model that’s more inquiry-driven and idea-centered. Now.

H. Lynn Erickson and Lois Lanning demonstrate how, through concept-based curriculum, you can move beyond superficial coverage and lower-level skills practice to effect intellectually engaging pedagogy, where students engage in problem finding and problem solving. New insights include:

  • How to design and implement concept-based curriculum and instruction across all subjects and grade levels.
  • Why content and process are two different (but equally important) aspects of any effective concept-based curriculum.
  • How to ensure students develop the all-important skill of synergistic thinking.
  • We’re all looking for the best curriculum and instruction model to meet the changing demands of the 21st century. This is it.
