Website for Dorothy Heathcote's "Mantle of the Expert"

http://www.mantleoftheexpert.com/This website is devoted to Dorothy Heatcote and her concept of "Mantle of the Expert".  It is filled with helpful information that explains what this strategy looks like in a classroom setting, as well as scholarly resources on how to implement it for your needs.  There is an extensive video archive with clips of Dorothy using the strategy while working with classes around the world, including clips of the famous documentary Three Looms Waiting.  There are also detailed testimonials from teachers who have used MoE in their classrooms reflecting on what the experience taught their students.  This is a great resource for teachers of all levels.
