Passion projects are a great way for students to research topics on their own. They have the freedom to decide what they want to know more about. During this research, students will have to practice reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills while creating their project. The students will be investigating their own interests while practicing the skills taught to them throughout the year.
A part of this project includes presenting the knowledge they have acquired. This means students may have to create or build something depending on their topic. Because of this we may need some items from home.
Also, since this class is made of students from 3 different schools students will be using Google Drive to turn in some assignments. They will also be using Schoology to share their progress. I have encouraged the students to do some of the work outside of our class since we only meet one day a week.
