[caption id=attachment_4099 align=alignright width=300] Monks bless the crowd at a human rights demonstration in Phnom Penh.[/caption] A month ago, I stood outside Cambodia’s National Assembly with hundreds of Buddhist monks.

It means my classroom is a place where my students spend time piecing together what they have learned, critically evaluating its larger purpose, and reflecting on their own learning. It also means my students don’t acquire knowledge just for the sake of acquiring it. They need to do something with it — that’s where “project-based” comes into play..."
