Want Engaged Learners? Sign PBL Contracts. - Getting Smart by John Hardison | 6th Grade English | Scoop.it
There was a time when my sole purpose for living and breathing, my ultimate dream, was to sign a contract -- a contract to play professional baseball. I simply wanted the opportunity to work hard in order to create a better me for the entire team.

This post shares the experience of a teacher in an American Literature course who began a project-based learning assignment that provided options for the students to demonstrate their learning through a project of their choice.
For more information continue on to the article.
