La Expedición

La Expedición follows the growth, progression, challenges and successes in two classrooms during the first year of teaching at the new Mundo Verde Public Charter School.

The Story

La Expedición follows Molly & Berenice, as they design and implement a learning expedition in the Expeditionary Learning model. La Expedición travels back and forth between behind-the-scenes preparation and inside the classroom implementation of the expedition lessons, capturing a diversity of teacher and student perspectives. In both English and Spanish, La Expedición walks through key experiential moments in a learning expedition, from the kick-off experience, efforts to build background knowledge, case studies, fieldwork, collaborative work with experts and a final student showcase. La Expedición offers an in-depth window into the culture of the classroom and a window into the impact of Expeditionary Learning on students, teachers and the school community.
