Details Education needs to be transformed into a system capable of developing human resources by fostering
thinking, judgment, and creative expression in all young learners. For this to happen, teaching
practices and curricular patterns cannot be seen as sacrosanct, but instead, they must continually evolve
with the times so that the students can fully participate in our rapidly changing global society and not
remain, mere spectators. A concrete curricular example of that reform trend
is the introduction of Kieran Egan’s “Learning in Depth” (LiD) program in selected schools. In the
EAL classroom, LiD can cultivate sustained conceptual inquiry that allows collaborative knowledge
building, This paper examines a 5 year study of adapting this progrma to the classroom.
