Reading Concept-Based Instruction will help teachers realize how to use curriculum mapping to identify thematic trends and then pull that information together for effective cross-curricular planning. Once teachers have a clear understanding of how the individual strands of their curriculum can connect under a theme, using high-value teaching practices will bring rigor, engagement and transferability for deeper understanding.
