I like the question again this week. It is one thing to talk about theory, but it is another thing to actually implement this in a real classroom. I like having to come up with a real project that would help integrate making in our classroom. This is were we are going to learn the most and get better.
I also learned that it is really hard to come up with projects in some subjects. Of course, this is assuming you have to get to a particular subject. If your curriculum is important to you it can be difficult coming up with a good prompt.
I also learned what a good prompt looks like and the 8 criteria used to see if a project is worth while from out text. These are good tools to use to see if you are on track. This will be useful both in the classroom and helping teachers.
