  • It’s great stuff! I was exposed to it through the article in Educational Leadership and I am now reading the book. It makes so much sense! Thank you for your great work! Dave Bell (Texas)

    When I started to use IE several years ago now, that I tried it out in a few lessons here and there, was amazed at the success and then began to look for other areas and subjects in which I could use the Lesson Planning Frameworks and other aspects of the theory. Pamela Hagen.

    Planning Frameworks

    last modified 2010-03-18 12:34

    This page provides updated versions of Kieran Egan's Imaginative Education planning frameworks. Planning frameworks for Mythic Understanding (most suitable for students in primary/elementary school), Romantic Understanding (most suitable for students in middle/secondary school), and Philosophic Understanding (most suitable for students in senior secondary school and college) are available in two forms:  first,  a "guide" which provides detailed instruction on how one might engage students' imaginations in learning, and second, an "outline" that includes planning questions only. Both "read only" and "writable" versions are provided. The circular frameworks designed by Tannis Calder offer an alternative approach to planning and can be particularly useful for brainstorming and initial access to topics.  To assist further in lesson and unit planning, examples of binary oppositions and heroic qualities are also provided.  For additional information on any of the cognitive tools included in these frameworks go to TEACHER TIPS.
