A metaphor for K - 8 learning - The Learning Journey

I've been working this year with Brenda June, a math teacher at our middle school. We are completing a MACUL funded project where we and the students created "learning chats". I'm excited to say I just completed the editing on the largest undertaking. (Click here to see some of our free resources related to the project.)

It was a three-part series called the The Learning Journey. Brenda and I have been gathering resources for over a year and trying out many things in her classes. We took what we learned to develop a metaphor for learning. Our hope is that we can use it through through all subjects and grades K - 8 in our district.

While the videos are not perfect, we are very proud of the message they tell. I'll be glad to hear any feedback you might have for us. Just send me an email.

The first video in the series introduces the metaphor and gives "Three Big Questions" for self-assessment. Note that we were perfecting our production process and this is the roughest of the series!



Part two looks at how to identify your next step in learning. It focuses on the first of the Three Big Questions.



Part 3 wraps up with a very important look at the third Big Question. Each possible answer results in different next steps.
