Reflection: What was the biggest challenge? What was the most rewarding aspect of this project?
The challenge this year has been to translate hands-on learning, and the forging of community ties, to distance learning. This project offered a way for students to connect with the community during a time of distance. “Allowing that process to unfold as it did, I think teaches them a lot,” Parish said. “Perseverance, determination, follow-through,” were some of the learning benefits, she added. As one of her students reflected, “We are bringing joy to those who for health reasons may not be able to see or be with their family right now.”
Any advice for a teacher or student that is implementing a PBE project for the first time?
“Keep an open mind when trying to come up with ideas.”
“Don’t overwhelm yourself, and remember that everyone makes mistakes. Just keep trying.”
