This project does not have day by day plans. It is an outline of what tasks to give your students and provides inspiration as well as a video I made that shows students how to be persistent in learning something new on their own. I can't imagine this working for a classroom without computers for each student.
This project forces students to leave out the basic information (fluff) of a biography and instead, research to LEARN. Students will research exactly what their Nobel Prize winner did. They will try to understand what exactly they did to earn their Nobel prizes, and you, the teacher will be amazed at how much they learn that you will probably never understand!
Nobel areas are: Peace, Literature, Medicine, Physics, and Chemistry. I am fascinated at how my students 'get' the sciences. I am learning with them, but some just have an innate ability to wrap their brains around this stuff. I'm good with the Literature and Peace prizes!
