The Ultimate Guide to Leveraging the Power of Concepts in the Classroom

FOundations of Concept-Based Literacy and language

Are you maximizing your students' potential as thinkers, creators, and communicators in your elementary or secondary school classroom?

By teaching literacy or world languages in a way that leverages your students' thinking and meaning-making, you have an opportunity to design units and lessons that move beyond skills to develop transferable conceptual understanding.

Concept-Based Literacy is a literacy model that is inquiry-driven and idea-centered, focused on helping your students to develop a lifelong love of literacy.

There is a better way... 

here's the thing:

Have a crystal clear picture of what Concept-Based Literacy looks like so you feel inspired and empowered to begin experimenting with this approach in your classroom?

​Gain greater confidence in working with concepts and leading your students to construct their own conceptual understanding?

​Be prepared to design units and lessons that develop knowledge, skills, and conceptual understanding simultaneously, which provides the foundation for learning transfer?

​Learn to leverage the literacy practices you are already using and take them one step further to develop conceptual understanding?
