HOSChamberlain Elementary:           An EL Education School

EL Education Vision:

When students and teachers are engaged in work that is challenging, adventurous and meaningful, learning and achievement flourish.

EL Education Mission:

To create classrooms where teachers can fulfill their highest aspirations, and students achieve more than they think possible, becoming active contributors to building a better world.

Dimensions of Student Achievement in EL Education:

4 Circles

Learning Expeditions:

Learning expeditions are the signature EL Education 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, and 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. All of these structures can also be used independently, outside of full learning expeditions.
