In EL Education Schools, learning expeditions serve as the signature curricular structure to engage students and make content standards come to life. The culminating product of learning expeditions features high-quality student work. Ideally, these products are created for an authentic audience (an audience beyond the classroom and the teacher) while also challenging students to demonstrate mastery towards one of the types of writing addressed in the Common Core State Standards (W.1, W.2, or W.3).
