Learning expeditions are the signature curricular structure for EL Education network schools. They make both content standards and content-based 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 learning expeditions, with special consideration for secondary teachers. They will experience design thinking through the process of selecting a topic, developing case studies, and designing authentic final products aligned to ELA and content standards. Additionally, they will learn criteria for worthy anchor texts and begin to consider ways to engage students with experts and fieldwork. Participants will leave with a vision and clear action plan for designing a quality expedition that is standards-aligned, compelling, and leads to quality work.

This institute is now at capacity.
