Teachers and curriculum specialists are exposed to many ideas from educational leaders, but it is difficult to know which ones can be transformed into meaningful learning experiences in the classroom. Concept-Based Instruction:

  • Helps educators translate the works of leading educational thinkers into concept-based units.
  • Draws from the works of Lynn Erickson, Heidi Hayes Jacobs, Carol Ann Tomlinson, Jay McTighe, Grant Wiggins, Benjamin Bloom, and John Hattie.
  • Challenges all students to think through active and meaningful learning experiences.
  • Shares tips for creating units in writing, literature, reading, social studies, and science.
  • Includes helpful examples of units to guide teachers and curriculum specialists.

Readers will learn how to create practical and organized units that inspire student thinking, discussion, conversation, and written assignments, as well as use levels of questioning and task complexity based on various forms of assessments and demonstrated readiness.
