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 your answer.

I think that projects are very interesting. We need team work in order to finish the project properly and on time. I would prefer projects than homework because when we are doing projects, more people are thinking, so it will be much more better than the work you do on your own. Having projects in every subject would be too much for us. I think teachers should not give us all the projects on the same time as we will be too busy and we might not have the time to come together to do the projects everyday. I think doing project is better than the traditional ways of showing what we know because we can show it in different ways like PowerPoint presentation or in videos. It would be very boring for teachers to teach us everything in the book as we can read it on our own already, so they should have different ways of teaching.
