  12. Problems-First Learning: 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.

Filled with problems-first lesson examples and tips for elevating students’ thinking, Problems-first learning: A framework for engaging minds and nurturing thinkers in grades 6–12 provides step-by-step guidance for teachers to increase students’ engagement and development of real-world skills in their classrooms.
