A Framework for Engaging minds and Nurturing Thinkers in Grades 6-12
The instructional pattern of “teaching as telling, learning as listening” has remained a tradition for generations. However, the 21st century requires a different approach. Through author Ted McCain’s problems-first instructional method, educators present their curriculum to students as a problem to solve – rather than as content to listen to – and then equip students with transferable processing skills that will help them effectively address challenges in school and beyond. Filled with problems-first lesson examples and tips for elevating students’ thinking, Problems-First Learning provides step-by-step guidance for teachers to increase students’ engagement and development of real-world skills in their classrooms.
