In this episode, I connect with Jeneille Branen and Erin Corwine, the powerhouses behind the Palouse Prairie Charter School in Moscow, Idaho. As a credited EL institute, it’s exemplary in executing the EL Education philosophy (formally known as Expeditionary Learning).
We discuss what makes the Palouse community and curriculum unique, the intentionality behind their rigorous hiring process, integrating the natural learning environments, and how they pivoted their practices during the pandemic.
