One pattern for deeplearning, called subject matter immersion (SMI), creates an environment in which the student is immersed, covered and surrounded bythe course content rather than merely beingpresented with it by the instructor.

19Our StoryIn 1886, William B. Dougall gathered several local leaders from Salt Lake Citytogether to make an important proposal: that the youth of Salt Lake City shouldhave a school of their own.It was a meeting that almost didn’t take place. The gathering was scheduled tooccur in a bookstore owned by James Dwyer, but the night before the meeting,a fire broke out in the building. The next morning, water that had been used toput out the fire was still dripping from the destroyed roof. That could have beenthe end of Dougall’s dream, but his group of determined, resourceful pioneersmet anyway, sitting on boxes and crates in the charred, damp remains of thebookstore.The symbolism of that meeting is extremely significant. Surrounded by the ashes of books, the gathered leaders made plans for a place of learning. The phoenix that rose from those ashes was the Salt Lake Stake Academy, now known asEnsign College.ENSIGN COLLEGE 2020-2021 ADMISSIONS GUIDE
