Concept-based instruction is driven by "big ideas" rather than subject-specific content. By helping students understand the context in which they will use their understanding, concept-based learning brings the "real world" meaning to content, knowledge and skills. Students become critical thinkers, which is essential to their ability to creatively solve problems in the 21st century.
It facilitates a deeper understanding of the content knowledge and acts as a springboard for students to respond to their learning with action. The focus is Concept based Curriculum (CBC), which is a 3-dimensional issue approach that focuses on what students will Know, Do and Understand.
