Big Ideas Shared at Fall Semester Celebrations of Learning

After working on 6-8 week learning expeditions, students communicated their achievement by acting as presenters and docents to explain their learning to families referencing documentation panels.

Learning expeditions are the signature EL Education curricular structure. They make standards come alive for students. These long-term, in-depth studies offer real-world connections that inspire students toward higher levels of academic achievement. Learning expeditions involve students in original research, critical thinking, and problem-solving, and they build character along with academic skills. All learning expeditions explicitly focus on building literacy skills particularly in reading and writing nonfiction text and writing from evidence.
