Cole commented on The Bicycle Project: A Three-Course Collaboration

Great idea! At my former school there was a teacher who mentored students in building bicycles out of bamboo. Have you considered sustainability at all in your approach to bicycle Design?

Cole commented on Create mystery or a cliffhanger...

Hi Ellen,
I'm just seeing this post and it is funny because it completely ties in with my Urban Hiking Mystery Adventure. Cliffhanger certainly work with older students as well. It is interesting how there is a narrative to most courses -- and just like in narrative drama -- cliffhangers and ticking clocks are super compelling and raise curiosity.

Hi Jessica,
Thanks so much for posting information about this study. When developing cutting-edge and progressive curricula it can be so helpful to have numbers to back up the progressive approach.
