• At Jesse Boyd Elementary, teaching and learning is conceptual.  Key Concepts define the types of questions that can be used to thoroughly explore any topic or inquiry. Students and teachers use the key concepts to create questions, expand understanding and comprehension, and to delve deeper into the curriculum. Imagine a subject or area that you might like to learn more about. Concepts create building blocks for learning.  

    Key concepts drive transdisciplinary learning. They are timeless, significant, universal and allow students to engage in higher order thinking in a meaningful way.
