The What
This strategy is a scaffold for interacting with experts so that students are prepared to make the most out of their data collection experience. An expert is someone who has authoritative, comprehensive, or demonstrated knowledge and skill in a particular discipline or area. Experts include scientists, chefs, artists, doctors, community leaders, professors, nutritionists, and so on. This strategy will help students prepare for interviewing experts.

The Why
Experts provide students with a beautiful connection between their academic content and the real world. The process of learning from an expert brings content to life and helps students see the applicable value in their studies. In addition to serving as an authentic data source, interacting with experts gives students an opportunity to develop the valuable lifelong skill of communicating with professionals and the chance to imagine themselves in a particular workforce.

The What
Introduces various formats for students to record what they learn and process while in the field or when interacting with an expert.

The Why
When students interact with the field it is crucial that they be active learners. Therefore, they must have an ongoing way to process and learn during such experiences. Structuring their documentation format enables a teacher to scaffold skills such as analyzing and synthesizing information. Real world exploration documentation can later be used as a form of data during research projects and papers.

The What
After conducting real world exploration, students will debrief their experiences by sharing out with their peers and making connections about what they experienced.

The Why
No two students experience real world exploration in the same way. Simply interacting with the field isn’t enough to “go deep”—we need to ensure that students have opportunities to process what they
experienced, communicate about it, and allow peers to share their experiences so the class can co-construct knowledge.
