What is Mantle of the Expert ?
In a nutshell... Mantle of the Expert is an inquiry method of teaching, which engages pupils as active learners, and enables teachers to meet their curriculum targets. Pupils are asked to take on the idea of working as a fictional 'enterprise' or team. They carry out a variety of tasks, to complete a purposeful 'commission' from a 'client.' The Mantle of the Expert system was created by Dorothy Heathcote. There's no set way of planning a Mantle project, but this guide will take you through some of the key elements.
