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.

I think that doing projects in every subject is difficult. It can be interesting and challenging too. It can also help us improve our friendship. This is how teamwork is formed. In order to do project in every subject, we need to understand the subject. Project-type assessment can present what we know in a group rather than a person showing what he/she knows to a class. In a group, we can discuss what, when and who are going to present the project together.

The first example that comes to my mind is in the June holidays, we got the guppy project. The guppy project involves Science, Maths and the IT lessons that we need for the graphs. We need to form ourselves into groups of five. We need to think who will go to measure the mass, who will present the project, how to present to project. We give different ideas to make our project more interesting. Like: What colour suit the background of the presentation better, how to make it more beautiful.
