Rachel French and Carla Marschall, co-founders of Connect the Dots Education chose Corbett Prep to showcase the work of teachers and students as exemplary models of concept-based inquiry. To guide educators in understanding what concept-based learning looks like in the classroom, French and Marschall are writing a book with supporting photographs and video content outlining instructional strategies that can support students in forming transferable understanding. Our teachers and students were videotaped on Monday and Tuesday modeling these concept-based inquiry strategies to positively influence educators worldwide.
Concept-based learning refers to a curriculum organized around big ideas that support transferable understanding. It develops creative and critical thinking in students and increases engagement and motivation.
