Focus Area: Learning Expeditions
Grade Level: All
Class Level: 100
Facilitators:
LeClair, Caitlin
Hill, Peter 
School/Organization: King Middle School


We often celebrate successful expeditions through the high quality work that students produce and the student engagement the expedition generates. But 
we rarely examine the steps teachers take to plan for that success. Pull back the curtain on expedition planning by analyzing how King Middle School’s 6-steps of Expedition Planning — a framework for creating compelling, rigorous, and high-quality learning expeditions — can be used to create exemplary learning expeditions. Participants will synthesize key planning processes with a case study of the ReVOLT expedition to see how teachers at King plan expeditions. We will collaborate to apply the learning to participants’ own schools to improve everyone’s practice.
