I found the Schools that work section to be particularly interesting. I read an article about a project based learning school in Texas. I have heard a lot of discussion about this type of learning so it was very interesting to see a school that had implemented this idea successfully. This school allowed students to for relationships and made the material relevant to them. A combination of those two ideas really helped to engage the students. There was a lot of flexibility for the teachers as long as they stuck to the standards. This type of learning is very new and innovative, I’m not sure if it will be successful for the majority of students. Due to the lack of structure it may not be an effective way for some students to learn.
