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


Looking for that one transformative moment when a student’s eyes light up, signaling he or she has finally grasped that big idea behind critical academic content? Concept-based curriculum and instruction is a way to make those moments many. H. Lynn Erickson and Lois Lanning offer new insight on:


  • How to design and implement concept-based curriculum and instruction across all subjects and grade levels
  • Why content and process are two equally important aspects of any effective concept-based curriculum
  • How to ensure students develop the all-important skill of synergistic thinking

Review:

"As educators we all think we understand concept-based curriculum, but those who read this text will have a comprehensive understanding of the meaning and value of concept-based curriculum. This text clearly explains concept-based teaching for the educator to use and develop a change in their teaching to effectively reach and engage students in critical thinking that will enable them to be productive citizens and lifelong learners."--Mrs. Karen Creech, Loudoun County Teacher

"High school department heads take notice! You will want to read this book with your curriculum supervisor and with your teachers before you re-design your courses to align with the aspirations of the CCSS and NGSS. The curriculum model and specific examples in this book provide you with a clear guide for designing complex, intellectually stimulating curriculum while integrating the new standards."--Dr. Carol Spencer, Director of Curriculum, K - 12

"Providing today's students with the skills to become critical, analytical, and life-long learners is an obligation each teacher must make. The authors present a clear path to transition from fact-based learning curriculum to concept-based curriculum. They have provided us with a clear, researched-based approach to help us advocate at our school and district level to make this critical change in curriculum."--Betty Rivinus, Learning Specialist / Autism Consultant

"With the onset of the Common Core and new national content standards, concept-based learning is now more crucial than ever. Erickson and Lanning are "ahead of the curve" in providing teachers and curriculum leaders with rich instructional strategies to meet these challenging standards. This is an essential book for planning tomorrow's curricula today."--Douglas Llewellyn, Educational Consultant and Author of Inquire Within, Third Edition

"Powerful teaching engages minds with powerful ideas. At its core, such transformative teaching is neither transmission of information nor practice with inert skills. Rather it is a careful choreography between a mind and an idea such that the mind comes to own the idea in a form that is true to the discipline and expansive for the learner. Erickson and Lanning teach teachers to be choreographers of learning--understanding both what makes content worth knowing and how to engage young minds with that content in ways that extend their capacities to understand it at a deep level, use it, transfer it, and ultimately create with it."--Carol Ann Tomlinson, Ed.D., Chair of Educational Leadership, Foundations, and Policy
