Minds are Changing!

We are into week three of our 20% Project and the students are working hard.  I have students that are learning to cook, solving a Rubik’s Cube under three minutes, archery, smelting metal, learning sign language, raising money for charities, raising awareness about pollution and raising awareness about cruelty to animals.  It is such a variety!  A few of the students, however, have changed their mind about their topics.  After this week, no topic changes can be made so that each student has a good amount of time to pursue their project and aim to complete all of their goals.  This year is the first year where the students had a harder time coming up with their project choices and more have changed topics than in previous years.  I am going to reflect on why this is happening and see what I can do about helping the students make their choices next year so that it is something they will stick with through the process.
