3) What are your thoughts about having 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 your answer.

At first, I was a bit reluctant to do as I thought that homework is already a burden to me but slowly I began understand that project is actually part of our study which is important to us. Project work need a lot of cooperation from group mates if it is group work but if it is individual work a lot of brain thinking is needed. We can know more by not only showing. We can do experiments, go for outdoor activities maybe will make us understand that particular thing better. Learning is not only by teaching, it can be used when we go for trips, maybe can we learn more than what the book have taught. Going for trip is not only for knowledge we can also learn a lot of skill like digging which can be use in History. We wouldn't get tired by teacher when he/she only teach us things that come from the book.[158 excluding title]
