    What problems do you notice in your neighborhood? Our city? Our state? Our country?
    What do you want to see get better around us?
  • 8. Your job this trimester is to work on something that you care about. Come up with a driving question that relates to a problem that you see in school, in your community, city, state, or even the country. Then you must create a strategy to do something about it. Your interest project this trimester is going to show what you found out and how you made an effort to fix the problem.
  • 9. Example of a driving question:
    How can we reduce the amount of trash our school throws out?

    Part 3. Show the results of your project and write a reflection on the results of your “do something” project. (Present at Exhibition)
