About this Issue: January/February 2019
If you are thinking about transitioning to a concept based curriculum (CBC), or are planning a review of your own CBC, the study by Brussow et al is a must-read. The authors report on their national study that developed a representative list of concepts and exemplars for a CBC. They share the list in a supplemental file and provide an example of how to use a leveled approach to positioning exemplars within the curriculum.
