SIM Virtual Professional Learning: The Concept Trilogy Series

Concept Mastery Routine, August 1, 10:00 am - 12:30 pm EST

Concept Comparison Routine August 3, 10:00 am - 12:30 pm EST

Concept Anchoring Routine August 4, 10:00 am - 12:30 pm EST

Presenters: Rosemary Tralli & Marc Markell

Concept-based instruction promotes higher order thinking and mastery of big ideas across all curricular areas.  The Content Enhancement Routines that focus on concept development are essential tools for teaching abstract ideas.  This professional learning series will introduce the Concept Mastery Routine, Concept Comparison Routine, and Concept Anchoring Routine.  Each of these routines has a set purpose and teaching process that deepen student understanding of critical concepts across disciplines and grade levels.  As a result of this professional learning experience, participants will be able to identify essential concepts within their curriculum, ensure student mastery of key concepts through classroom instruction, and assess student mastery of key concepts as a result of instruction.  These are stand alone sessions, but we encourage participation in all three for optimum concept experience.

Participants will receive the following materials as part of their registration: SIM Virtual Professional Learning, applicable guidebook(s), access to digital teacher resources, and a one-hour small group coaching session.
