​​​EL Education Overview: 

Learning expeditions are the signature EL curricular structure that makes content standards come alive for students. These long-term, in-depth studies offer real-world connections which inspire students toward new levels of academic rigor. Learning expeditions are a central vehicle for meeting all three dimensions of student achievement--mastery of skills and knowledge, character development, and high quality work. They take multiple, powerful elements of the EL approach and join them together: a kick-off experience, guiding questions, case studies, projects and products, fieldwork, experts, service learning, and a culminating event that features high-quality student work. All of these structures can also be used independently in the EL approach, outside of a full learning expedition. Click EL Education for more information.
