Concept-Based Learning


Grade 2/3 students used the book A River Ran Wild, by Lynne Cherry, to think about the concepts of form, causation, and responsibility. It is a story about an American river impacted by humans in different ways over time. We used the lenses of our special glasses to examine the story and help us answer concept questions such as; What is it like? What caused it to be this way? and How can we take responsibility?.
