If a problem seems worthy of solving, older high school students can sometimes be just as willing as adults to take charge of their learning to research a solution. Real life is where most self-directed learning occurs. When given an engaging classroom assignment, students can jump in and develop much-needed problem-solving skills for life. This course illuminates the benefits of trusting older high school students with self-learning and offers a step-by-step approach for tapping into students’ self-motivation for solving problems. This course is not about how to give students more projects. It is about how to set students free with their own creativity as a guide while remaining within school curriculum guidelines.
