I love to jigsaw project research with my high school students, having them teach smaller groups and then sometimes even teach other classes. I believe in giving options for projects, or, at least, flexibility in how it can be completed. I like to do examples when possible, and include those in my resources if I have them. The more students can be out of their desks, acting things out, role playing, debating, walking around the classroom- the better. I think this teaching style requires a lot of buy-in from both students and teacher, but it's worth it!

I believe in projects that are well-defined but allow lots of leeway from students. I think this gives a sense of ownership but also no room for loopholes. I think you will see this teaching style in my products, which I believe have been very effective in teaching secondary humanities courses.
