How about students produce a show for kids, by kids, helping kids succeed in school? Show could center on Math and vocab building.

Patty commented on Mind blowing Movie-making!

Thanks! Well, there's definitely different ways to express and demonstrate learning. Filmmaking is just one!  Honestly, we should ask kids how they'd like to show/demonstrate mastery of what they've learned.  We might be surprised at their responses!

Thanks Lesli! I think when real-world questions and/or challenges are posed, students rise to the occasion. My students LOvE that their learning is directly related to the real-world and their learning results in a tangible, usable product. This not only motivates them, but it motivates me as their teacher to keep their experiences new and fresh and most importantly---RELEVANT.

Thanks! When kids take ownership and have the flexibility to direct their own learning, great things happen!
