CONCEPT-BASED CURRICULUM

October 31st - November 2nd

British School of Sofia

BSS hosted a professional Concept-Based Learning (CBL) workshop for a Thinking Classroom for its teachers. It was developed by Dr. Lynn Erickson and Dr. Lois Lanning and led by Rachel French - an experienced international educator, having worked in schools in South America, Africa, Europe and Oceania.

Rachel talked about the developing role of concept-based curriculum and described why and how this approach is so valuable for teaching and learning. She aimed to provide the teachers with conceptual understanding and strategies. In this context she said that “the key is to use guiding questions to help students inquire into concepts and the relationships between them”.

As a result many ideas and strategies were exchanged between the participants. Through different sessions and practical arrangements the BSS teachers from all stages were challenged to expose the essence of their professional patterns of understanding in a well structured attempt that generalises the elite education.
