project-based reflection

Well, the student in me was reminded how difficult project-based learning can be. BUT the teacher in me realized that it really brings in a new dynamic to the classroom.  It’s interesting to see how the group dynamics work for different people and how some work well with others.  I think it builds a lot of communication skill, or lack there of, and as a teacher, you can see this very clearly.  I think that project-based learning can be super beneficial but probably best-fit for smaller projects and less weight on the actual assignment.  It can be a great learning experience for the teacher learning more about the students and just as great of a learning experience for the students to really learn new aspects about themselves and peers.  Overall, I see the pros and cons of project-based learning from a student, and most importantly, a teacher’s point of view.
