Five overarching principles of constructivist theory:

  1. Pose problems of emerging relevance
  2. Structure lessons around primary concepts or "big ideas", not facts and skills
  3. Seek and value students' points of view
  4. Adapt curriculum to challenge students' suppositions
  5. Assess student learning in the context of teaching

Questions to ask yourself:

  • What will the students learn?
  • How will the students learn?
  • Did the students learn?
  • How will the teacher document their own growth?
  • What did the teacher learn?
