Mantle of the Expert

Mantle of the Expert

 

 

"Mantle of the Expert is an education approach that uses imaginary contexts to generate purposeful and engaging activities for learning.

 

Mantle of the Expert works by the teacher planning a fictional context where the students take on the responsibilities of an expert team. As the team, they are commissioned by a client to work on a assignment, which has been planned to generate tasks and activities that will involve them in studying and developing wide areas of the curriculum".
