About Mantle of the Expert
Mantle of the Expert is a drama inquiry approach to education that endeavours to bring life to the curriculum by creating fictional contexts in which the children take on the role of experts.
Mantle allows children to explore learning through the safety of the make-believe, as part of an expert team who has responsibilities to fulfil. The learning objectives will be carefully curated by the teacher in order to cover the curriculum, who will then present a provocation to the class (like a broken map, curious item, photos, a person) who will then build a context around the item.
Mantle has been seen to improve literacy skills, inspire motivation for learning and foster collaborative learning communities (information taken from action research and case-studies).
Mantle of the Expert can enhance all areas of the curriculum by allowing subjects to be taught cross-curricular, including Social and Emotional Learning.
The event will take place on 25th and 26th of September 2019.
The location of the event is Bucharest, Sector 2, Str Oltetului nr 15, at Verita International School.
I found Mantle of the Expert to be essential in building a thriving learning community. The teacher-student dynamic is re-arranged, so we are all learners in the classroom, who can learn from each other and develop our understanding together. Mantle not only captivates and intrinsically motivates the children through drama, but the adults too.
Mantle of the Expert is the big WOW that both my students and I expect every day. It is engaging, creative, inquiry-based, drama played and fun. We learn from each other, we involve the general public and build a learning community, we approach the curriculum in many and various ways and we deepen our emotional intelligence.
Mantle lifts your spirit, builds memories, generates engaging activities based on curricula, creativity and imagination.
