    The ultimate goal of this learning strategy is to give students deep conceptual understandings of their topic. This requires a depth of knowledge for teachers that demands collaboration and alignment. When students are given various routes to understand a subject, they have an opportunity to wallow in complexity and really struggle with various topics and concepts. This is something that they might not be used to but that demands a student-centered learning approach that they can quickly come to embrace.
