By Marschall and French
Knowing facts is not enough. If we want students to develop intellectually, solve problems creatively, and grapple with complexity, the key is in conceptual understanding. The second edition of Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction for the Thinking Classroom brings together the work of Dr. Lynn Erickson and Dr. Lois Lanning, providing a complete foundation for a Concept-Based approach to curriculum design.
By Erickson, Lanning, and French
Understand the phases of inquiry that empower students to see patterns and make connections, moving from the factual to the conceptual level of thinking to support transferable understanding. Concept-Based Inquiry in Action and its accompanying website are your new go-to instructional resources, packed with video clips of Concept-Based Inquiry classrooms in action, visual chapter notes, templates of graphic organizers, and more.
“This book is smart, wise, and energizing. It honors the disciplines we teach by reminding us of inherent meaning. It honors teachers with the belief that they grow as human beings through understanding the power of what they teach. It honors students by expecting them to become thinkers capable of reasoned stewardship of the world they live in and will inherit.”
"I have read your book Concept-Based Inquiry in Action and found it transformational. I teach in an IB PYP school in the US. We are beholden to rigorous specific content standards. This approach finally offered a roadmap to building units of inquiry that address those rigorous standards while honoring Concept-Based learning and the principles of IB."
In this series, we sit down with some of the most innovative minds in education to discuss new ideas, share best practices, and explore the latest trends and technologies.
