Shayla Miller's curator insight, July 17, 2013 11:53 AM

I love the perspective that is given from the actual student.

Angela K. Adams's curator insight, October 25, 2015 11:31 AM

Student Issues - I chose this resource because I feel that project-based learning is a great strategy for teachers to implement because it allows students to get involved in learning about relevant issues.  I hope to share this with teachers in hopes to implement PBL in their lessons to increase student engagement.

"“If we were to invest according to what the biology of brain development is telling us, there would be a lot more investment in children early on.”"


More validation that we must address the effects of poverty on children and consider their uniques needs in schools.
