The concepts and strategies offered by Author, Kim Liegel, in her pioneering book, Make It Happen!, are being applied by ultra-successful companies across the world. These real-world techniques offer teachers and students a learning process that leads to success beyond the classroom.
Many parents are not aware that the traditional teaching methods they experienced in school are being replaced, and that new skills are now required to compete for grades. Project-based learning (PBL) is a new concept in education being widely implemented around the country and the world. Studies are showing double-digit performance improvements as a result of implementing PBL programs.
With more teachers assigning projects, the task of doing multiple and simultaneous classroom projects is a common predicament. While PBL is garnering support as an effective teaching method, there remains no formal curriculum in teaching project concepts or discipline within the education K-12 continuum.
Likewise, teachers are unlikely to have training in formal project concepts or discipline themselves, making the consistent, effective use of projects as a teaching tool that much more challenging.
