Summary by Accomplished Teacher
"In this blog post, author and journalist describes a successful project-based learning exercise undertaken by every student and teacher at an Oklahoma school. Suzie Boss writes that five factors helped drive the success of the project, including a schoolwide assembly that fed students' interest in the project from the start. Teachers also divided students into balanced teams and encouraged them to consult outside experts, she writes, while international mentors were consulted and students' projects were judged."
