In this workshop the following questions will be addressed:

  • How is knowledge structured and how can we utilize that structure to develop the intellect?
  • How can we move to a three-dimensional curriculum and instruction model that allows us to compact the overloaded curriculum, and teach both factual and conceptual knowledge with greater depth and rigour?
  • What is a conceptual lens and how can we use it to develop higher levels of thinking and increased motivation for learning?
  • How can we design instruction to achieve synergistic thinking between the factual and conceptual levels of knowledge and understanding?
  • How do we scaffold thinking to deeper levels?
  • How do we develop different kinds of guiding questions to path student thinking from the factual to the conceptual level of understanding?
  • What is the difference between an Activity and a Performance of Deep Understanding?
  • What does concept-based instruction “look like” in the classroom?​
