    EL Education Network

Learning expeditions are the signature EL Education curricular structure. They make both content standards and Common Core literacy come alive through long-term, in-depth studies of real-world topics. Participants attending this institute will dive into the whys and hows of expeditions. They will be led through the process of selecting an expedition topic, developing case studies, and designing authentic final products. Additionally, they will learn strategies for developing learning targets, selecting anchor texts, and engaging students with experts and fieldwork.

Note regarding target audience: This institute is most effective for teams planning expeditions together or individuals who can plan on behalf of their team. At least one participant from the team should have experience with EL, as this is not considered an introductory institute.
