Concept English Philosophy

Concept English believes teachers should adapt units of instruction to meet the needs of their specific students. Teachers work from our Curriculum Maps and adapt our Master Units (located in SIS) which are based on our maps/scope and sequence. Teachers add  texts, activities, strategies and assessments to engage students in meaningful ways to master the standards and  enhance the reading of our Anchor Texts. Within the framework of Understanding By Design we work backward from the outcomes/standards targeted.

Concept English Advisory
