Teaching for conceptual understanding provides teachers with the freedom to design learning opportunities that engage and excite children while helping them to develop deep transferable learning around core concepts and competences. To achieve the potential for deep understanding requires a re-thinking of how curriculum is planned for and implemented. During this highly practical session, Garfield will bring clarity to what it means to teach for conceptual understanding and will provide a powerful approach for planning around a central concept, related concepts and rich provocative challenges. The session will model the use of concept-driven lessons that are designed to promote rich critical and creative inquiry and will provide a selection of strategies for daily instruction that support nurturing conceptual understanding.
