The Learning in Depth Program (LiD) has captured the imagination of teachers and students in over a dozen countries around the world. This innovative program fosters curiosity and nurtures a love of learning by allowing students to become self-directed experts on a topic over the course of their schooling.
Designed for teachers who will be supervising the development of students’ LiD portfolios, this resource kit addresses practical matters of keeping students imaginatively engaged with their LiD topics. The LiDKit: Resources for Implementing the Learning in Depth Program compiles materials for teachers who want to implement LiD in their classrooms or schools, as well as introduce LiD to other teachers, administrators, and parents.
“The Learning in Depth project has brought to our students a completely new relationship to learning that has been surprising in its depth and quality.”
