You selected this course to gain experience in good citizenship by engaging in community-based service learning. You are working on a teaching portfolio on expeditionary and project-based learning.
Purpose: Research conversations about Expeditionary Learning, in theory and in practice, will contribute to your understanding of how and where this educational model works in classroom learning contexts.
Composing a "review" of the literature will help you imagine an actual conversation with your partner classroom teacher, particularly the opportunities for applying these research cases in Rockbridge County Schools.
Prompt: Imagine your partner teacher from a Rockbridge County classroom has asked for some teaching inspiration from recent scholarly research (last 15 years). She asks your team to search for two new sources (each is responsible for one). Search and contribute a theoretical or practical “case” source from a peer-reviewed, educational journal, and compose a 1 page review analyzing and recommending this article to your partner teacher.
