In K-12 Social Studies, we have conducted training using a concept-based framework developed by Dr. H. Lynn Erickson, an international expert and consultant in concept-based curriculum and instructional design. However; as you know, this is not the only framework that you may use to design your local curriculum. Other frameworks include Understanding by Design (UbD) by Wiggins and Jay McTighe and Rigorous Curriculum Design by Larry Ainsworth. We have elected to use Dr. Erickson’s framework in our training because we know it really supports conceptual understanding and student engagement and aligns well with our new standards.
