Concept-Based Literacy Lessons

Moving student learning beyond practicing strategies and skills to deeper conceptual understandings develops disciplinary expertise and better enables students to transfer complex skills to new situations. We must cultivate readers, writers, speakers, and listeners who are confident transacting with any type of text they will encounter in the future, and who have the skill set needed to communicate their own ideas through platforms that we haven’t even dreamt yet.

In this hands-on inquiry based workshop, participants will experience Concept-Based Literacy in action while also learning effective tools for designing learning experiences that cultivate deep conceptual understanding and transfer.

Multiple Pathways to Conceptual Understanding

In a Concept-Based classroom, the core instruction is rigorous yet accessible, structured yet flexible, and intentional yet driven by inquiry. The content is relevant, filled with opportunities for student choice, and invites students to bring their own thinking to the study. Learning goals transcend what students will know and are able to do, to encompass key conceptual understandings that transfer through time and across cultures.

In this hands-on inquiry based workshop, participants will experience Concept-Based learning in action while also gaining practical tools for designing accessible learning experiences that cultivate deep conceptual understanding and transfer. This includes ideas for gathering dynamic resources and tips for curating Inquiry Boxes to support Concept-Based teaching and learning.
