Description

'I love the author's delineation of her own understanding of concept-based teaching over an 18-year period. Somehow that humanizes the work of teaching-helps us understand that only as we risk growth will we be able to guide our students in that way as well' - Carol Tomlinson, Professor of Educational Leadership, Curry School of Education, University of Virginia 'A worthwhile and important contribution to the field' - Jay McTighe, Educational Author and Consultant, McTighe and Associates 'Reader friendly, lots of illustrations and examples, personal in tone, and down to earth' - Kathy Hargrove, Associate Dean, School of Education and Human Development, Southern Methodist University Drawing on Lynn Erickson's 15 years experience of working with teachers, curriculum developers, teacher educators, and instructional leaders, this resource offers a complete guide to designing curricula that foster the continuous growth and development of a student's critical, abstract, and creative learning skills. Educators will learn how to: * Bring coherence and clarity to high-quality curriculum design and instructional planning * Teach the way that students' minds learn best * Encourage students' creative and abstract thinking, regardless of level or subject area * Gain the support of headteachers and district administrators
