Concept-Based Inquiry in Action provides teachers with the tools and resources necessary to organize and focus student learning around concepts and conceptual relationships that support the transfer of understanding.

What Reviewers Are Saying
"It's not every day that you read educational literature that you know will immediately have an impact on developing and improving your teaching practice. This book is like a guide that will lead you through the steps to becoming a better Concept-Based teacher. It is a book that teachers will take to planning meetings, have open, and refer to everyday. Just as a travel guide leads you too new discoveries this book will lead you to new discoveries with Concept-Based Inquiry. With this book you will see change and success in not only your teaching practice but also the understanding that the students will have in their learning." -- Trudy McMillin, Grade 5 PYP teacher, Lower School Maths Coordinator "Filled with strategies, illustrations, diagrams, and pictures, this book really gives you the insight you need to help students better understand what they are learning. So many great ideas that can be used in any classroom. A must read for all educators." -- Amanda McKee, 9th, Algebra/Geometry, Secondary Certified Instructor/Mentor "I feel that this is a book that is timely and needed for a clearer picture of Concept-based Inquiry in action. This is a manuscript that educators would be able to pick up, understand, and apply into the classroom." -- Brenda Booth, Coordinator of Consultant Teachers, Concept-Based Trainer "For all its pedagogical purity, concept-based learning continues, no doubt, to perplex in practice. This book synchronizes concept and inquiry-based learning, demystifying the theories that underpin them and providing a wealth of practical classroom strategies that, ultimately, serves to deepen students' conceptual understandings. This is exactly what my school needs right now to support colleagues to build on the foundations of our written concept-based curriculum and to take-off our taught curriculum to the next - and highest - levels." -- Neville Kirton, Deputy Head of Secondary
