Those words have often not gone together – engagement, rigor and research. But finally, they are for most students most of the past week or so, with the new and improved Take Action Project. I’m excited to share the activities and pictures with you.
I’ll be posting the new Take Action Project in parts, after Marshall and I actually teach it.

It’s a balancing act between student choice, rigor and unmanageable chaos. So far, so fun, for us as well as our classes.
