Year 8's Battle of Hastings
"Good morning, class. Today we will be learning about the Battle of Hastings; please open your textbooks to page 93."
"Good morning, class. Today we will be learning about the Battle of Hastings by crafting our own weapons, creating armour from newspapers, and re-enacting the key moments of the Norman's victory against the Saxons."
This is why experiential education works.
Living your learning is the most powerful way to bring about transformational outcomes – lessons that last, understandings that are... well... properly understood.
It's why we teach this way at Woodleigh. And why we love T. Ryan.
