Feedback form is now closed.

In this interactive session designed for Upper Primary homeroom teachers and specialists, participants will discuss how concept-based transdisciplinary units should (and shouldn’t) look. We will grapple with some themes and practice turning them into Enduring Understandings/Big Ideas which are conceptually based.

Session Objectives:

Collaborate with other international educators to practice developing Enduring Understandings/Big Ideas that will provide access to rich inquiry for students.
