ELMS Expeditions & E-Nights (Exhibitions)

Learning expeditions are the signature Expeditionary Learning curricular structure. They make content standards come alive for students. These long-term, in-depth studies offer real-world connections that inspire students toward higher levels of academic achievement. Learning expeditions involve students in original research, critical thinking, problem solving, and they build character along with academic skills. All learning expeditions explicitly focus on building literacy skills in students, particularly in the reading and writing of nonfiction text.

Learning expeditions take multiple, powerful elements of the EL model and join them together: guiding questions, kickoff experiences, case studies, projects, lessons, fieldwork, experts, service learning, and a culminating event featuring high-quality student work (“E-Night”). All of these structures can also be used independently, outside of full learning expeditions. (Excerpt taken From EL Core Practices Book)
