Description

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.

Features:

  • Consider the thinking and processing skills that students need in the 21st century
  • Recognise the shortcomings of a traditional lecture-based instructional method
  • Understand how a problems-first teaching style can equip students with higher-level thinking skills
  • Assess their current classroom methods and learn how to shift to problems-first practices
  • Review examples of problems-first lesson plans
