In 2010, Metropolitan Expeditionary Learning School (MELS) opened with the vision of helping teachers collaboratively construct and implement standards-based interdisciplinary Learning Expeditions. By engaging all students in compelling topics and teachers as curriculum designers, MELS created a school culture characterized by high levels of student engagement and powerful learning. In 2016, 100 percent of MELS first class graduated on time. This site seminar will demonstrate how MELS’s collaborative school culture supports both students and teachers in developing as effective learners. Participants will explore with MELS teachers and students the relationship between collaborative curriculum planning, implementation, and the development of mindsets for success among students and teachers.
