"Trying to teach in the 21st century without conceptual schema for knowledge is trying to build a house without a blueprint”.

Based on the work of Lynn Erickson and the IBPYP, teachers will develop an understanding of what a “conceptual understanding” is. Teachers will then be led through the process of writing and scaffolding to develop strong conceptual understandings. There will also be the chance to practically apply this process to their own units.

For this workshop teachers will need access to their Programme of Inquiry and/or Unit of Inquiry planning

Key Takeaways
  • What is a conceptual understanding?
  • How do I write strong conceptual understandings?
  • How can I use these in my planning?
