  • The assignments, projects, homework we had in our learning experiences will not meet the need of today’s modern students. Reading the book, answer the questions at the end of the text, watch a video or film strip, take notes, take a test is not going to “cut it”. Read a novel, analyze characters, learn literacy terms, write a term paper…. On and on… not enough for students of today.
  • Students need you to develop these skills. With this assignment, you can critically think and problem solve, collaborate , adapt, explore unique written communication, access and analyze information and develop your own curiosity and imagination. You can take responsibility of your own learn – see the video.
