General
How I Use It
Initially I let the students just start working. It became clear early on that they needed guidance. It was worth doing and the kids really enjoyed it. I definitely plan on trying it again.
My Take
Being an English teacher, I had a hard time fitting this into class, but we took this to be using the he informational text standards. The kids loved doing this project. They worked together well and enjoyed each other’s ideas.
