Why

Project-based learning is designed for students to discover and learn about a topic or genre they enjoy and then present their mastery to the class and others beyond the classroom. Start by identifying a topic that truly interests you. When planning your inquiry and choosing how to present, consider ways to demonstrate your mastery that also challenge your strong verbal reasoning skills, including using creative writing styles or demonstrating your knowledge of nuance and details.
