A Question Leads to Deep Learning

geodes-2Today, a student’s questions about Geodes led us to Morocco, Brazil, Ohio, and to a local San Luis Obispo business. This highly-motivated learner went on an interest-led expedition using higher-order thinking and research skills which culminated in a hands-on experience at I Love Rocks on Broad Street. With a freshly mined geode in his hand, he practiced important reading and writing skills within the context of a passionate interest. Could learning get any better than this?
