Authentic Learning Journeys (ALJs) form the basis / framework of integrated learning at Somerville Intermediate School.

An authentic learning journey provides opportunities for students to be involved in real life learning, as research has proved that students are more likely to develop deep understanding when they are involved in authentic, connected learning situations. This offers students opportunities to ask relevant questions and to develop as confident learners who can critically think through issues and problems to find purposeful solutions and understandings.
