An Introduction to Mantle of the Expert
Mantle of the Expert is a ‘dramatic inquiry’ teaching approach used in hundreds of classrooms around the world, including in Aotearoa New Zealand. It is popular with teachers and learners as a way to make learning engaging, collaborative, active, authentic, safe and meaningful – right across the curriculum.
Learners are positioned as a responsible expert team working on an important job, or commission. Through drama and inquiry they encounter and overcome real-world problems and explore multiple perspectives as they deepen skills and knowledge across the curriculum.
Research has shown benefits for learning in literacy, maths, science, social studies and the arts as well as enhanced critical thinking, empathy and self direction.
This introductory session gives participants an opportunity to learn more about dramatic inquiry, hear about real examples and experience a little of the approach for themselves.
The hands on, participatory workshop will be of interest to primary and secondary teachers and others interested in innovative approaches to education.
