This one-day workshop will look at the different the tenets of concept-based curriculum and instruction with a focus on mathematics for Pre-k to 12. The answers to the following questions addressed:

  1. How is knowledge structured and how can we utilize that structure to develop the intellect?

  2. How can we move to a three-dimensional curriculum and instruction model that allows us to compact the overloaded curriculum, and help students learn both factual and conceptual knowledge with greater depth and rigour?

  3. How can we design instruction and learning experiences to encourage synergistic thinking between the factual and conceptual levels of knowledge and understanding?

  4. How do we scaffold thinking to deeper and higher levels?
