The national school network Expeditionary Learning, one of our leading deeper learning exemplars, has seen demand for its services expand enormously. It has grown from a small network of 100 schools to a major curriculum and professional development organization serving the Delaware, Newark, New Jersey, and the state and city of New York and several other major districts and states. The network is now facing the challenge of rapidly building its internal capacity to deliver these services. This grant would help Expeditionary Learning develop teacher capacity at scale to teach deeper learning knowledge and competencies by continuing to generate high-quality instructional materials, expand its online professional learning strategies, and scale its district reach and impact to support deeper learning through the Common Core.
