Welcome to Concept Builders!

You have reached the Concept Builders section of the website. We encourage you to snoop around and see what you can find. But before you do, we'd like to issue the following warning: this section is a Beta section that is still in development. It has not officially opened and there is no link to this page from anywhere else on our website. We hope to make this section official in August of 2017. We would also like to encourage you to stop back by often to see what is new. Our Concept-Builders section will be receiving more love and attention than any other section of our website. So keep returning and expect to find something new.

So you might be wondering: What is a Concept Builder? A Concept-Builder is a name that we have given to the interactive questioning modules that you will find in this section. Each interactive concept builder presents learners with carefully crafted questions that target various aspects of a discrete concept. There are typically multiple levels of difficulty or multiple activities in each Concept Builder. Each Concept Builder focuses the learner's attention upon a discrete learning outcome. Questions target that outcome from a variety of angles. Learners ponder the given information and answer questions in the hopes of earning Stars and Medals. These Stars (for answering questions) and Medals (for completing levels or activities) are displayed on the screen, allowing a teacher to track student progress through the Concept Builder. The Concept Builders are stand-alone activities that do not require an activity page or a worksheet.

So snoop around a bit and see if anything catches your attention. And be sure to stop back by in the Fall for our Grand Opening.
