3 Essential Questions:



  1. Mathew

    Great overview of project based learning. I especially appreciate your deciding on an objective and creating a rubric in the planning process for the project.

  2. Cheryl Oakes

    Lisa, what a great voice, calm, serious and very encouraging. You make it all sound so easy. I am sure you will bring along some people who will try something new with their students! You really paint a great picture of a teacher who tries, is exhausted and then reflects and can use a new strategy!Planning, planning, planning, did you say that enough? But it is the truth!
    I love how you explained grooming your experts and how caring they were. Nice job!!! Nice sharing!!
