It was also really exciting to be able to talk to someone about their grading process for PBL's. It's really hard to know how to evaluate students on when they are all taking the project different ways. It was nice to be able to hear from someone who has successfully done PBL talk about how she evaluates her students.
Price Laboratory School really offers some great experiences for their students and teaches them valuable things they can use in the future. You can tell how passionate their students are just by sitting in one class. WE sat in on a physics class and got to see their presentations on solar cars. The students used many ways to present their information to the class. Some used powerpoint, websites, and one group even created a song. While sitting in on this class, it was easy to see that they enjoyed what they were learning and had great teachers leading them. I hope that I can do the same some day.
