Concept-based curriculum and instruction provide a powerful and coherent method of teaching in a way that shapes the intellect for deep understanding of concepts, facts, and ideas across the content areas.
Knowing the facts is not enough. If we want students to develop intellectually, creatively problem-solve, and grapple with complexity, the key is in conceptual understanding. A concept-based curriculum recaptures students’ innate curiosity about the world and provides the thrilling feeling of engaging one’s mind.
The books in this series are based on Lynn Erickson's Structure of Knowledge and Lois Lanning's Structure of Process to help educators create concept-based curriculum across subject areas and grade-levels.
