All smart & hard workers hate group work, because they end up doing it all.

Much like the rest of life, where 5% do, 85% watch and pretend, and 10% fuck it up.

What the hell does that even mean?


Wow - whatever that means, I'm against it. If something can't be clearly and concisely said so as to be readily understandable, then somebody is trying to hide something bad.

^^^^^^^^^^^
Glad I am in the five percent with you and most people I know as friends. The 10 percent do provide entertainment as long as it does not affect me or my sandbox.

41 stated it best.

“and project-based.”

Project based is more than listening, trying to memorize and then pass the test.
Each student has a project. While this “project” can vary with each school, it often involves student research, interviewing experts, writing a paper, building a physical (real) project and making a presentation to the class.

“Classrooms of students who are actively engaged in their own learning”

- In an older technique of teaching students were “empty vessels” to be filled with knowledge - ie, pour it into them through lecture. “Actively engaged” means the student is challenged. An example here might be “You like cars, can you figure out how gas and electric cars are different and then explain it to the class?” The student knows something about cars, this is an opportunity to learn more (the active part) and he/she then gets to share that new knowledge.

I have a Doctorate in Education. My dissertation was on Project Based Learning.

If you liked Shop class, you would have loved project based learning.

Where experiential education is more important than charted results. Everyone will get a gold star and the superintendent will get a bonus.



If the sup had said: "our goal is to increase test scores on math, science and writing", being measurable it could lead to failure and her out of a job if the scores don't rise the likely moral of the story: Test scores go down or go away entirely.

My wife’s school switched to this model a few years ago and it’s actually been quite successful. The kids complete the projects on an individual basis rather than in groups however.
