A few weeks ago we decided that we were going to do  research projects on topics of our choice.  First we talked about how we could go about doing this and made a list.

After we decided what we wanted to study and who we might like to work with, we made a list of questions we wanted to find out about our topics.

We kept a running record of what we did.

Everyone decided to make diaromas to go with their written reports.  Everyone was so engaged and focused.  Sometimes I’m so surprised by their intensity.
