3) What are your thoughts about having to do projects in every subject? In what ways are project-type assessments more difficult, interesting, challenging, or meaningful than traditional ways of showing what you know? Cite an example or two to support you answer.

My thoughts about having to do projects in every subject is to know every classmate’s opinion on a certain subject. Some projects are difficult because if the project is on the subject Mathematics, the group members might find it hard to solve the topic. Another reason, for all subjects, that it is very difficult for all the group members to agree on an answer because each of them have their own and they think theirs are the correct ones.

In my opinion, majority will think that group project is more fun than individual project. The answer is because each of the group members can have a break after they do his or her part. The interesting thing about doing projects is that you can learned more new things than in the classroom, like in the library, through the internet and even real-life. The subject that is the most challenging to do a project is Mathematics. We need more thinking to do the project, but it is actually positive if we do in a group because, the group members will not argue with their answers if the topic was very challenging.

The most meaningful thing in projects is always on the first few days of school because it will be very easy to make new friends.
