High-school student makes the case for project-based learning - Courtesy of ASCD Smartbrief

  • In our conversations about differentiation for the CCSS, we sometimes forget about differentiating for multiple intelligences.  This article reminds us of the necessity of reaching all students, the venue for doing so, and ........the change that needs to take place.  
  • Project based learning and performance tasks seems to be linked to me!
    In an excerpt from his book, "One Size Does Not Fit All: A Student's Assessment of School," high-school senior Nikhil Goyal writes about the benefits of project-based learning. However, he quotes educators who say the teaching method has been slow to catch on because it is "messy" and gets them into trouble with administrators who prefer seeing students being quiet in their seats. He also quotes Harvard professor Howard Gardner as preferring a combination of two models: hands-on exploration and structured apprenticeship.
