Liz Becker's comment, May 31, 2012 1:35 PM
I think project-based learning is a good way to motivate students. In my last district, we had a PBL school that students could elect to attend for 1/2 of their day. They received their core curriculum instruction in this way. I had a few chances to visit as a guest speaker and as a presentation evaluater and they were all good experiences. It was really great to see how they integrated everything and the impact it had on students.
