Henry Jones, a senior at Casco Bay High School, recently had his Expeditionary Learning experiences on the topic of climate change published as a blog in Education Week, a prestigious national publication covering K-12 education.

His blog, titled “How My Research on Climate Change Changed Me,” focused on the work his class did in 2014 to document the effects of climate change on Hurricane Sandy victims in Red Hook in New York City.

Henry’s description of what he learned in the experience also showcases Expeditionary Learning. CBHS, founded in 2005, is a Mentor School within the Expeditionary Learning network and is recognized as a national leader in project-based and “deeper” learning.

April Hattori, director of communications for New York-based Expeditionary Learning network, said, “The EL family is very excited about Henry's blog! We're looking forward to sharing it with our network on our website and social media. The impact of the Hurricane Sandy expedition is amazing.”
