It's almost here!
In two days my daughter and I are heading out on the ultimate field trip to the United Kingdom. In fact I would wager that we will learn more in those six days than the typical student learns in a semester.
How much will she learn in just six days?
Our adventure will include history, math (we've got to convert dollars to pounds, not to mention the metric system), fashion, language, cultural studies, religion, art, law, architecture, geography, and of course we can't forget MUSIC!
This educational experience will be:
- relevant (engaging and meaningful);
- rigorous (we will either learn complex material quickly or get lost/waste money/be frustrated/get a ticket/irritate the locals...);
- and, thankfully, my daughter has a great relationship with her teacher.
Now, Tana, let's go do some authentic learning!
