Concept Development describes the strategies teachers use to promote students’ higher-order thinking skills in contrast to a focus on rote instruction. The use of these strategies can help students learn more about how to think independently, problem-solve and will help prepare students for AZ Common Score standards K-12. During this workshop, we will:
• Define Concept Development
• Discuss how to foster children’s thinking skills through the use of Concept Development
• Plan for intentional Concept Development through practice activities
