Has THIS been taught/delivered in any classrooms? I love the idea of getting to know the students through the students! Are there any lessons that you would recommend we could combine? I'm wondering if 16 45 minute lessons is too many to maintain momentum and engagement with the project...
Has anyone allowed for multiple forms of final product? I'm thinking students could re-write the lyrics to a song to introduce their partner, write a poem, create a video/powerpoint, the poster as suggested... or have an Oprah style interview... I WILL be using this idea for September and am thrilled it has been shared! =D
